BiographyHistory

According to the website listed below, Harriet Lewis was, after Eden Southworth, perhaps the most serialised, popular author of her time. Both women wrote prolifically for the New York Ledger.

'The Australian Journal "discovered" Harriet Lewis during the feminine renaissance in the 1880s and during the next fifteen years it printed thirteen of her twenty-three stories, but like the LJ [London Journal] it placed her serials inside the journal. It is telling that the editor often chose her less aristocratic titles (which the London Journal preferred) reflecting the Australian Journal's working-class editorial stance. How her novels came to Australia is a mystery, the AJ [Australian Journal] fails to [give] their New York Ledger appearances, it merely lists her previous titles. "Beatrix Rohan" and "Reaping the Whirlwind" are not new stories but creative adjustments, Australia's own variations.'
