Grace Farrell is the Rebecca Clifton Reade Professor of English at Butler University. Among her published works is an edition of Lillie Devereux Blake's 1874 novel, Fettered for Life.
Blake is certainly one of the most important of the recently recovered women writers of the nineteenth century. In this beautifully written and insightful biography, Farrell advances our understanding of Blake's importance by culturally contextualizing her life and writings in complex and fascinating ways. As a Civil War journalist, renowned novelist, ardent advocate of women's suffrage, and articulate lecturer in support of the labor movement, Blake gives us significant insights into the major political and social movements of the period. This is a book I simply could not put down. It is a model of scholarship and a must-read for anyone interested in nineteenth-century studies.--Sharon M. Harris, author of Rebecca Harding Davis and American Realism
