An Amazing Woman

“During her career, she wrote more than 40 novels, children’s books and collections of short stories and essays. She was an animal lover and rescuer, and at times owned as many as thirty dogs.”

“Ouida’s work had several successive phases during her career. Her first novel, Held in Bondage was published in 1863, when she was 24. In her early period, her novels were considered “racy” and “swashbuckling”, a contrast to “the moralistic prose of early Victorian literature””

She sounds like a fun lady! ❤
