When she died in 1847 at the age of thirty-one, Grace Aguilar had already attained a reputation as a poet, historical romance writer, domestic novelist, Jewish emancipator, religious reformer, educator, social historian, theologian and liturgist. A Jewish woman in Victorian England, Aguilar produced books that appealed to both Jews and Christians, women and men, religious traditionalists and reformers, and which were subsequently translated into French, German and Hebrew.
