Remembering Grace Darling: Heroine and Victorian Media Sensation. At Flickering Lamps, Caroline writes about Grace Darling, a lighthouse keeper's daughter who in 1838 assisted in rescuing shipwreck survivors. "The fame of Grace Darling provides a fascinating insight into the way that the 19th Century media helped to create modern-day heroes, and how Grace's character reflected the period's idea of the virtuous woman."
