Charlotte Bronte to W. S. Williams, 10 November 1851: <br/><br/> "I have now read ""The Fair Carew."" It seems to me a delightful work and of genuine metal. Whether it has the glare and strong excitement necessary to attract the million I do not know, but I find in it the ease and repose only seen in good books. It owns both breadth of outline and delicacy of finish [...] The truth and nature of the characters are beyond praise; the satire has a keen edge, yet the temper of the work is good and genial. The writer is as shrewd as Miss Austen and not so shrewish, as interesting as Mrs Inchbald and more vigorous [...] The interest is strongest in the latter half of the first volume; yet for me the narrative never flagged, and where I was not spellbound I was charmed and amused. Who and what is this lady?"
