Best known as the writer of Illustrations of Political Economy, Retrospect of Western Travel; two novels, Deerbrook and The Hour and the Man; Eastern Life, Past and Present; a History of the Thirty Years’ Peace, and various other works. Her first publication was a book of Devotional Exercises, with hymns appended to each Exercise, and her hymns also belong to what she speaks of in the Autobiography as her "Unitarian" period.
