Comments

A sympathetic fictional character study of an Eastern Russian Jewish family. Elizabeth Eastlake (1809-1893) spent several years in Eastern Russia, which she wrote about in her A Residence on the Shores of the Baltic (1841), which was highly thought of. The Jewess was collected with two other tales set on the Baltic and published as Livonian Tales by John Murray in 1846.
