DeWees discovered there were scores of great women writers who were forgotten over time. She decided to select a list to write about, and focused her research on seven groundbreaking writers. She writes about their heartbreaking struggles, their indomitable spirits, their creativity and defiance. Her selections are Charlotte Turner Smith [1749-1806], Helen Maria Williams [1759-1827], Mary Robinson [1758-1800], Catherine Crowe [1800-1876], Sara Coleridge [1802-1852], Dinah Mulock Craik [1826-1887], and Mary Elizabeth Braddon [1835-1915]. Along the way she reveals the dark prejudices that explain why they have been forgotten by history. Introduction, Afterword, Endnotes, Bibliography. Harper Perennial. 2016. Paper. NEW. $10.00
