Reviews

"Written in a clear, simple, attractive, and unpretentious style, Frances Power Cobbe includes much information that is unexpected and very interesting, about such matters as the weird Utopian religious colony, the Agapemone, which one of her brothers joined; illegitimate children; divorce; mixed-race marriage; women's suffrage and other feminist political causes; and the tribulations of the anti-vivisectionist societies.

--Dorothy Mermin, author of Godiva's Ride: Women of Letters in England, 1830-1880
