‘The Woman Who Did’ written in 1893, wholly and solely to satisfy the author’s conscience was perhaps the most controversial book of the late 19th Century. Certainly, it was a success de scandale and a commercial triumph. The heroine, Herminia Barton, chooses to live unmarried with her lover. When he dies, she endures many a trial for her beliefs—particularly after the ‘stigma’ of bearing his child—being cast out from both families.

Unfortunately the Women’s Movement, whose views the book purported to represent, rejected it as unhelpful to their cause but the author was quite sure of his own intentions and the strength of his heroine’s convictions.
