The Amelia Alderson Opie Archive
1805 Adeline Mowbray; or, the Mother and Daughter
Monthly Mirror, 19 (1805): 180.


We always feel great satisfaction in taking up a work which has employed the ingenuity and talents of Mrs Opie, and it is but justice to confess, that our expectations have never been disappointed. What we have looked for from her invention, we have rarely missed, and what we have thought due from her powers of description and pathos, has almost invariably been meted to us in a measure overflowing. Adeline Mowbray abounds in all these desirable qualities, and will be read with infinite interest and no small degree of instruction.
