Aguilar, Grace, a lady of Jewish race, born at Hackney in 1816. She possessed considerable literary ability, and wrote several romances, a number of tales, and a few religious tracts. The Vale of Cedars and The Days of Bruce are the best kncwn of her novels. The style is mock-heroic and dull. Her sketches after the manner of Miss Edgeworth hit the taste of her generation, and the titles, Home Influence, The Mother's Recompense, Woman's Friendship, Home Scenes and Heart Studies, indicate clearly enough their character. Among her more serious writings, The Women of Israel and The Spirit of Judaism are the most important. She died in 1847 at Frankfort.
