For more on the Boyle women including a survey of their writings and a critical commentary, see the following publications: 

Ann-Maria Walsh, The daughters of the first earl of Cork: writing family, faith, politics and place (Dublin, 2020).  

Ann-Maria Walsh, 'The Boyle Women and Familial Life Writing' in Julie A. Eckerle & Naomi McAreavey (eds), Women's Life Writing & Early Modern Ireland (Lincoln, 2019), pp 79-98.
