Excerpt from Masterpieces of the World's Best Literature

Dinah maria (mulock) craik, English novelist, at stoke-upon-trent in 1896; died in 1887. Her first novel, The Ogilvies, was written in 1849, and was at once a success. In 1865 she mar ried George Lillie Craik. She wrote thirty novels and many stories and articles for the magazines. Though many of these would have established her literary fame, she will always be known for her John Halifax, Gentleman. Mrs. Craik, however, always said that she believed that A Life For a Life was her best novel, but her judgment has not been confirmed by the majority of her readers. Her poems are true to life - never over-emotional, and entitle her to the name of poet as well as that of a novelist.
