Soon after its favourable reception, she wrote Molly Bawn (1878), which became her most well-known book. She was one of the few women in Victorian times who was both a prolific author and mother of a sizeable family. She approached her writing methodically, setting aside three hours every morning for it. The room where she did her writing had neatly organized manuscripts at her desk, surrounded by many reference works, novels, and other books. Her books were first published anonymously, and later as by "Mrs. Hungerford." In the United States, her books were mostly published under the pen name "The Duchess." Amongst her other works are The Haunted Chamber (1886) and A Little Rebel (1890).

    Credo che sia il più famoso dei libri di The Duchess, ma l'ho trovato un po' meno avvincente di Faith and Unfaith. Nonostante qualche romanticheria di troppo, un gran bel romanzo.

    This was the first book I read from this author. I was hooked and wanted more books by the Duchess.
