From experience, Evelina expects problems to occur from such calls, and she is not wrong in this. Called to the banner of feminism, she experiments dazzlingly with the modern problem of sexual inequality, and finds an ancient solution.

Maria Thompson Daviess was born in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, to an upper-middle-class family. Her mother moved the family to Nashville on the death of her father and sister. She studied art at Peabody College, and won a scholarhip to Europe, where she lived for several years on the Left Banke in Paris. Returning to America, she opened a studio selling minatures, and taught art. The success of a story at a reading turned her to literature, and she wrote thirteen novels and an autobiography during her fifteen-year career. Her most famous novel was Miss Selma Lue, and she adapted Phyllis to the stage. Daviess was a charter member of the Nashville woman suffrage organization, and a concern for women's rights infuses her work.
