This seems to be a society novel.
Emily Eden (1797-1869) was the 7th daughter of the 14 children of William Eden, 1st Baron of Auckland. Her eldest sibling was George Eden, better known to students of Indian History as the 1st Earl of Auckland, Governor-General of India (1836-1842). She was born into a blue-blooded family of achievers and in early life was inspired by her mother, who was an independent-minded woman, who travelled extensively with her highly placed husband and took an active interest in public affairs along with him.
Emily grew up to be a versatile and gifted woman and became a successful novelist, a painter and a writer of a book entitled "Up the Country" (pub. 1866) that described through her letters, her journey with her brother and his retinue, from Kolkata to Shimla. Besides "Up the Country" she wrote two novels "The Semi-Detached House" (1859) and "The Semi-Attached Couple" (1860). All of her books were received well by the reading public.
