The three Brontës by May Sinclair( Book )

56 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the Brontë sisters, published in 1912, showcases Sinclair's sometimes acerbic critical acumen. As the author herself notes, because all the best things about the Brontës have been said already, I have had to fall back on the humble day-labour of clearing away some of the rubbish that has gathered around them
Mary Olivier: a life by May Sinclair( Book )

50 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Olivier is one of May Sinclair's best-remembered novels. The youngest of four children and the only girl in her Victorian family, Mary Olivier faces formidable barriers: she will not be educated as her brothers, nor will she be afforded their freedoms. Held emotionally hostage to a calculating mother, Mary retreats into her imagination and into books. Rejecting Victorian formulas, she becomes a published poet and refuses to marry a succession of suitors. Yet she remains a dutiful daughter. Hers is a timeless story in which obligation and liberty, acquiescence and rebellion coexist in a fully realized, ultimately modern woman
Life and death of Harriett Frean by May Sinclair( Book )

53 editions published between 1922 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harriett is the Victorian embodiment of all the virtues then viewed as essential to the womanly ideal: a woman reared to love, honour and obey. Idolising her parents, she learns from childhood to equate love with self-sacrifice, so that when she falls in love with the fiance of her closest friend, renunciation of this unworthy passion initially brings her a peculiar sort of happiness. But the passing of time reveals a different truth. Ironic, brief and intensely realised, The Life and Death of Harriett Frean (1922) is a modernest novel, a brilliant study of female virtue seen as vice, and stands with the work of Virgina Woolf and Dorothy Richardson as one of the great innovative novels of the century
