The sequence of the chapters works well in providing a thorough examination of Morley’s written musings on parenthood, integrated seamlessly with an analysis of his own practices in raising his stepchildren, nephew, and step-grandchildren. I came away with a renewed appreciation of and interest in Morley and also a better understanding of how liberal philosophy has impacted approaches to parenthood.

This [book's] dedication to the complex network of ideas and lived practice makes Walter Besant more than a mere love letter to a forgotten Victorian. Rather, it provides an integral contribution to the history of publishing and of literary production, and to studies of liberalism and reform as they appeared at the end of the century.
