About Book

Book Description
1886. A noted novelist of more than 70 books. After her husband and two sons died of yellow fever, she moved to New York with her three daughters, $5.00, and faith in God, to start a new life. She published her first novel, Jan Vedder's Wife, which was an immediate success at the age of 53. A great advocate of Women's Rights, she was one of the earliest activists who campaigned for equal pay for women who performed equal jobs as men. Remember the Alamo is her best remembered work. A Daughter of Fife begins: On the shore of a little landlocked haven, into which the gulls and terms bring tidings of the sea, stands the fishing hamlet of Pittenloch. It is in the East Neuk o' Fife, that bit of old Scotland fronted with a girdle of little towns, of which Pittenloch is one of the smallest and the most characteristic. Some of the cottages stand upon the sands, others are grouped in a steep glen, and a few surmount the lofty sea-washed rocks.
