Harraden studied in Dresden, at Cheltenham Ladies’ College in Gloucestershire and at Queen’s College and Bedford College in London, and received a BA degree. She travelled extensively in Europe and the United States and in 1893 found fame with her debut novel, "Ships That Pass in the Night," a love story set in a tuberculosis sanatorium.

Summary Good

Assessor Cassie Coffey

Notes Binding is still intact but somewhat loose, however no pages appear to be missing or torn. The corners of the cover have some wear and turning. The print on the binding is fading, and the illustration is hard to decipher. However, the rest of the books illustrations are in great condition! The pages have yellowing on the edges but there are no interruptions or markings in the text.
