In 1851 she published a popular book titled Die Mennoniten. The story was centered around Danzig during and after the siege of 1813 and had as its theme the young man concerning whom Bishop Eylert wrote, and who was the hero of Wildenbruch's Menonit. On the whole the treatment differed from Wildenbruch's and the attitude toward the Mennonites was much friendlier.
