Won by waiting: A novel (Unknown Binding) by Edna Lyall (Author) Author of 'We Two', Donnovan, and 'A Hardy Norseman', 1st Edition HARDCOVER, F.M.Lupton Pub Co NY. Stratford Edition 1892, 1892. fair to good Condition Binding is Hardcover. NOT a former library copy. Undated. 297 pages This is a really old book - the pages are printed on a really heavy paper stock (almost like cardboard). Nineteenth century romantic tale. By the author of "Donovan", "We Two", etc. Novel set in France. Begins at the Chateau de Mabillon with the remants of the De Mabillon family. LYALL, EDNA, the pen-name of ADA ELLEN BAYLY (1857— 1903), English novelist. She was born at Brighton in 1857, the daughter of a barrister. Her parents died while she was a child, and she was brought up at Caterham, Surrey. At Eastbourne, where most of her life was spent, she was well known for her philanthropic activity. She died on the 8th of February 1903. Edna Lyall’s vogue as a novelist was the result of a combination of the story-teller’s gift with a sincere ethical and religious spirit of Christian tolerance, which at the time was new to many readers. Though her Won by Waiting (1879) had some success, it was with Donovan (1882) and We Two (1884), in which the persecuted atheist was inevitably identified with Charles Bradlaugh, that she became widely popular. Other novels were In the Golden Days (1885), a story of the Great Rebellion; Knight Errant (1887); Autobiography of A Slander (1887); A Hardy Norseman (1889); Derrick Vaughan, The Story of a Novelist (1889); To Right the Wrong (1892); Doreen (1894), A statement of the case for Irish Home Rule; The Autobiograph of a Truth (1896), the proceeds of which were devoted to the Armenian Relief Fund; In Spite of All (1901), which had originally been produced by Mr. Ben Greet as a play; and The Bruges Letters (1902), a book for children. A Life by J. N. Escreet appeared in 1904, and a shorter account of her by the Rev. G. A. Payne was printed at Manchester in 1903. Born Ada Ellen Bayly in Brighton, the youngest of four children of a London barrister. Her father died when she was eleven and her mother three years later. She was educated at home, with her uncle in Caterham, Surrey and at private schools in Brighton. She resided for the rest of her life separately with each of her two married sisters in Lincoln, London and Eastbourne. Her connection with the West Midlands is through her brother, the Rev. R. Burges Bayly who became vicar of Bosbury, Herefordshire. Edna Lyall's novel In spite of all (1901) is set partly on Bosbury Hill and when the author died in Eastbourne in 1903 her cremated remains were buried at the foot of the old cross in Bosbury churchyard. Edna Lyall wrote 18 novels, the first, Won by waiting, being published in 1879 to little success. The name Edan Lyall is apparently derived from transposing letters from Ada Ellen Bayly. Her second novel, Donovan (1882) reveals the author's Unitarian upbringing in its treatment of religious tolerance and politics. Gladstone thought sufficiently highly of the work to write to its author to commend it as "a very delicate and refined work of art". It was followed by a sequel, We two (1884), which tells of a politician who refuses to swear on oath in order to take up his seat at the House of Commons. This was her first great success and is based on the real-life figure of Charles Bradlaugh who was elected as MP for Northampton in 1880 but did not affirm his allegiance until six years later. In the golden days (1885), an historical novel set in the seventeenth century, brought her considerable income and is recorded as being the book John Ruskin read on his deathbed. Derrick Vaughan, novelist (1889) uses material from Edna Lyall's own life as does The Burges letters (1902) which draws on her country childhood [description with the permission of Literary Heritage - West Midlands.
