From the Publisher"Professor Surridge exhibits a clear and persuasive historical sense as well as sensitivity to the novels and stories. I believe this study will have lasting value because of its careful historical research and corresponding interpretation of the texts."
— Naomi Wood, Kansas State University
“From a historian’s perspective, Surridge’s interpretations of individual texts are persuasive, yet it is her contextualization of these works of fiction within ongoing reform movements and newspaper reporting that makes this a truly remarkable book.”
“A carefully researched and lucidly written investigation of literary portrayals of domestic violence.... Surridge’s precise historicizing reveals fictional subtleties with new clarity.”
