Comments

A novel with a contemporary religious theme aimed at the Tractarian movement - or Oxford Movement - of which Catharine Long (1797-1867), a rare evangelical from the upper classes, did not approve. See Robert Lee Wolff, Gains and Losses: Novels of Faith and Doubt in Victorian England, pages 212-220, and the DNB.
