Georgiana Chatterton

-
GC published industriously from her early thirties until her death, so that her career spans much of the middle nineteenth century. As a novelist she always feels the pull of religious motivation for her writing, while as a travel writer she often has a humanitarian and reconciliatory purpose. She also did translation and editorial work, and published poetry and devotional writings.
