Reviews

"This meticulously researched biography provides a valuable corrective to the benign neglect. Marion Diamond's well-balanced picture of Rye depicts a woman inspired as much by Evangelical Anglicanism as by feminism. Diamond deftly handles the contradictions that result." -- Victorian Studies

"Given her partial neglect and unfashionalbe obsessions, Rye makes a challenging subject for a biographer, and Diamond has risen to the challenge admirably. Diamond's relentless pursuit of her subject's trail in four countries is the distinctive mark of this engrossing biography. The book is an important contribution to the history of empire; those interested in the puzzling ways in which feminism, gender, religion, and philanthropy intertwined with the course of imperial development should not be without it." -- Victorian Studies
