, writing in the second half of the nineteenth century, produced both children's books and adult novels, as well as some translation and journalism, sometimes in collaboration with her sister Eliza. Her fiction for children is refreshingly imaginative and conveys morals less intrusively than that of many contemporaries. Her books of information for children cover geography and ancient history. Her letters include much that is still worth reading.
