refers to her as Thomasina Woolf, remarking that “She wrote The Waves, you 

There are appearances as well in her stories "The Last Reunion" and "The People 
on Privilege Hill."

Daughter (heard an NPR recommendation and it is indeed a pleasant summer read), 
and she appears as a glimpsed character.
