Comments

¶ The scarce first book by Caroline Sheridan Norton (1808-1877), written largely in response to her miserable first marriage to George Chapple Norton. She was later prolific contributor to literary annuals, she wrote four novels, and several other books of poetry, a few of which she illustrated.
