Grace Kennedy

Grace Kennedy (1782-1825) was a Scottish writer. She was born at Pinmore, Ayrshire, but at an early age removed to Edinburgh. She wrote novels of a religious tendency which were very popular in their day. She is best known as the author of Father Clement (1823), an anti-Roman-Catholic novel, which ran through some dozen editions and was translated into several languages. Other books of hers are:

  • Anna Ross (1823)
  • Dunallan (second edition, 1825)
  • Jessy Allan (twelfth edition, 1853)
  • Decision (1821)

A collection of her works in six volumes appeared at Edinburgh in 1827, and a German translation of them, Sämmtliche Werke, in Bielefeld in 1838 and another one in 1842.
