'He had beheld the shadowy form of the dead and buried woman, but tall as a ship’s mast, glide over the sands, shake a threatening hand at the village, and touch the stern and sails of every foredoomed boat.' - 'The White Woman of Slaith'
'Behind her sister’s chair, with her warm shawl pulled awry, her plain black satin bonnet crushed, its white lining and primly-quilled cap speckled with blood, stood her grandmother with pale face and finger up, as if she said, “Beware!” ' - 'A New Leaf'
'The face of the judge purpled, foam issued from his mouth and flecked his scarlet robes, and from his black and gaping lips came a sound more like a bark than aught human.' - 'Judgment Deferred'

'Mrs. Banks has great power of framing characters that are at once interesting and true to nature.’ - Sunday Times, 1865.
