Sort: Oldest first
An English novelist, daughter of an East India agent in London; born Jan. 24, 1864. After schooling and a season in Germany, she took her degree at London University at 21, showing marked excellence in languages. She was then employed in a publishing-house, but ill-health compelled her to leave. Her first novel, "Ships that Pass in the Night", was instantly successful. This was followed by "In Varying Moods" (1894); "Things will Take a Turn" (1894); "Hilda Strafford", a Californian story; "Katharine Frensham" (1903).
