First American edition of Aguilar's fourth book, edited and seen through press by her mother, Sarah. In the preface, Sarah pays a heartfelt tribute to her daughter:
The Works of Grace Aguilar are now before the public-the present volume being the conclusion of a series in which the delineation of the Character of Woman has been the chief design. The wishes of the author of "The Women of Israel" will be fulfilled, should the unceasing labours of a life, too early closed, awaken sentiments of pure affection, and illustrate by example the delights of Home."
