Product description

Synopsis

The day was of the last description. A beast, or a human being in whose veins coursed undisciplined blood, might, as involuntarily as the boughs of trees lash before storms, perform wild and wicked deeds after inhaling that hot air, evil with the sweat of sin- evoked toil, with nitrogen stored from festering sores of nature and the loathsome emanations of suffering life.

About the Author

Freeman was born in Randolph, Massachusetts and at fifteen moved with her family to Brattleboro, Vermont. In 1884, left without any immediate family, she returned to Randolph, where she lived for almost twenty years with her childhood friend Mary Wales. She began to write seriously in the 1970s, & in the early 1880s her work began to appear in such popular magazines as Harper's Bazar and Harper's Monthly Magazine. At forty-nine Mary E. Wilkins married Charles Manning Freeman, a New Jersey physician, and moved to Metuchen. Thereafter she wrote under the name Mary E. Wilkins Freeman. In April 1926, she received the William Dean Howells Medal for Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; later that year she was among the 1st women to be elected to membership in the Natl. Inst. of Art & Letters

5.0 out of 5 stars Marie's Read 24 Oct. 2013
By Marie Shirley Griffin Reading/Allen's Shopping - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book of short stories was written at the turn of the century- electricity and phones were available, but cars were not much in use. Some of the prose is unusual for us, but so worthwhile to read. While this book never mentions Christ, Christians will see the amazing love that the people in many of these stories show. It's a difficult book to explain, but one that will likely change you, if you allow it to - please give it a chance.
