1901. Prolific writer of children's books, she is credited with pioneering American writing of nonsense verses for children, but she received the Pulitzer Prize for a biography of her mother, Julia Ward Howe, a social reformer who wrote the words to the Battle Hymn of the Republic. In this charming love story, the young Dr. Strong is forced to confront his prejudice against women in the field of medicine. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
Left alone, Geoffrey Strong fell to his pacing again, up and down the neat gravel paths with their tall box hedges. His face was very tender; looking at it, one might know he had been a loving son to his mother. But presently he frowned over his cigar, and then laughed, and went and shook the unoffending moth (it was a rare one, if he had been thinking of that kind of thing) off the phlox.
