Scarlet Sister Mary is the story of a free-spirited woman's life in the post-Emancipation South [Carolina].

Green Thursday : stories by Julia Mood Peterkin( Book )

11 editions published between 1924 and 1998 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the same time, however, Green Thursday was praised by reviewers and social observers from all quarters, including W.E.B. Du Bois, who called it "a beautiful book."
