A Heroine of France

Book cover
Evelyn Ward Everett-Green (1856-1932) was an English novelist who started her writing career with improving and pious stories for children, and later wrote historical fiction for older girls, and then adult romantic fiction. She wrote about 350 books: more than 200 under her own name, and others using the pen-names H. F. E., Cecil Adair, E. Ward, or Evelyn Dare. In 1880 her first published work, Tom Tempest's Victory, appeared, and though it was soon followed by more, she found writing at home difficult, and town winters did not suit her health. In 1883 she went to live outside London with Catherine Mainwaring Sladen, and in the 1890s and early 1900s they had homes in Albury, Surrey. Her novel about Joan of Arc, Called of Her Country (1903), later re-published as A Heroine of France, presents Joan as a feminine "Angelic Maid" in white armour whose inspiring adventures were undertaken in a dutiful spirit. Much of Everett-Green's fiction was aimed at girls, but she also wrote boys' adventure stories, like A Gordon Highlander (1901).
