AW began publishing her six novels just after the middle of the eighteenth century. She favoured the briefer, two-volume format and innovative structures and plots. Her final novel closes with verse. At least two of her novels allow a self-reliant older female figure, who has achieved her own character-development, to steal the limelight from the nubile heroine.
