Her other prose fiction, however, is less well known. Through a study of ten representative texts, most of which have not been subject to detailed literary analysis in the past, the author considers Francois's powerful portrayals of female self-reliance, and seeks to elucidate aspects of her most cherished convictions, which centred on values of honour and duty, and on a vision of a more equitable and decent society.
