, a Scotswoman who lived the early part of her life abroad, was a varied and prolific author. Between the 1860s and 1890s she produced ten novels, a travel book, many journal articles (including a short story and literary reviews), and two translations. She is best known for her sensation novels, which focus on hidden madness and extramarital desires, and are remarkable for their unusual perspective on female passion as essential. Her works, although out of print, are nevertheless witty and engaging, and offer an interesting variation on better-known sensation novels.
