The Lady Actress reviewed at Dragon Views

“While the main text is fairly well written, and consistently interesting, some of the transitions between Mrs. Taylor’s text and excerpts of Mrs. Mowatt-Ritchie’s text are not as smooth as could be desired, yet those transitions were not jarring enough to dissuade an interested reader from continuing. This is one book I had a very hard time putting down. It has made me want to locate copies of Mrs. Mowatt-Ritchie’s works to read for myself.”

The Lady Actress review at Amazon

“Women wielding pens was much a much more uncommon thing. ‘The Lady Actress: Recovering the Lost Legacy of a Victorian American Superstar’ is a biography of Anna Cora Mowatt, telling the story of one of the first American playwrights, who got her start in the middle of the nineteenth century. Independent yet traditional, her life was an intriguing duality of the emerging role of the women during her era. An intriguing look at society and the arts through one woman, “The Lady Actress” is a choice pick, highly recommended.”
