Written under the pseudonym of Olive Pratt Rayner, also used for The Type-Writer Girl (1897), Rosalba: The Story of her Development (1899) is the last completed novel by prolific Canadian-born writer Grant Allen. Partly set in the lavishing Colli Berici, near Vicenza, this sentimental comedy of emancipation tells the story of a bilingual Italian girl who embarks on a journey across Europe which will lead her to discover the truth about her past and finally attain happiness. Perhaps more than his earlier novels, Rosalba can be seen as the ultimate exemplification of Allen’s evolutionist thought.

Written under the pseudonym of Olive Pratt Rayner, also used for The Type-Writer Girl (1897), Rosalba: The Story of her Development (1899) is the last completed novel by prolific Canadian-born writer Grant Allen. Partly set in the lavishing Colli Berici, near Vicenza, this sentimental comedy of emancipation tells the story of a bilingual Italian girl who embarks on a journey across Europe which will lead her to discover the truth about her past and finally attain happiness. Perhaps more than his earlier novels, Rosalba can be seen as the ultimate exemplification of Allen’s evolutionist thought.
