Jolly, Emily: The Cypresses Vol 1. v1. 22 Jan 2016

Emily Jolly (1834–1917): Emily Jolly was born Margate, the elder daughter of Thomas Jolly, the one-time mayor of Bath. (Her brother William Cracknell Jolly also served a term as mayor.) As a young woman she began writing fiction, beginning with "A Wife's Story" first published in Dickens's Household Words in 1855. She followed with nearly a dozen novels. In the 1870s, Jolly gave up writing fiction. She never married and lived for twenty years with Emily Dobell, the widow of the poet Sydney Dobell (d. 1874). Jolly edited a life and letters of the poet in 1878. After Dobell's death in 1900, she moved to Dorset where she died in 1917.

Excerpt
Miss Trevor was, for one so young, singularly alone in the world. To a cypress-sentinelled grave in that churchyard — a grave on which she had this afternoon laid a wreath of immortelles, purchased in the village as she came through it—had, not long since, been consigned the “earthly remains” of her last surviving relative, Madame de la Capéde, her mother’s aunt, a native of the south of France, and a woman who had richly possessed the vices considered to be most characteristic of the southern temperament, without the redeeming virtues. Indolent and fiercely passionate, coarse and sensual to brutality, it had been impossible that Miss Trevor should love or esteem her, and she made no pretence of regretting her loss. She had served her for five years, and now she was free and alone. She was three-and-twenty, and this was her birthday.
