'Self Control' (1811) was a literary sensation, going into four editions in its first year. The first novelist to set her story against a strong Scottish background, Brunton set the scene for other writers such as Walter Scott. It is a work of evangelical fiction. Brunton's heroine, Laura Monteville, is a religious but independent-minded woman, able to acknowledge desire whilst reflecting on her relationship with God. As well as being entertaining, the novel offers its readers a thought-provoking exploration of early 19th-century attitudes towards gender and religion.
