Product Description

Review

In Kelley's deft hands, the writers' contributions to subsequent generations seem even more profound. Those who enter the world of Southworth, Stowe, and the other literary domestics will be grateful that these women novelists did not after all remain (to paraphrase one of them) in the obscurity of their homes. ("Women's Review of Books") --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
