Vein of iron by Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow ( Book )
22 editions published between 1935 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 2,351 libraries worldwide
Ellen Glasgow considered Vein of Iron, published in 1935, to be her best work. "No novel has ever meant quite so much to me," she wrote a friend. The critics agreed; the book was favorably reviewed on the front page of the New York Times Book Review and outsold all but one other work of fiction in the year of its publication. Opening in the years just before the First World War and laid in the Valley of Virginia, the book traces the experience of a family with four generations of strong women. Faced with a crisis when the bread-winner, a philosopher-minister, is defrocked for his unorthodox views, the women provide the "vein of iron" which carries the family through removal to Richmond (Queensboro in the book), through war and depression until the final return to the mountains.

The sheltered life by Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow ( Book )
28 editions published between 1923 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,518 libraries worldwide
"The Sheltered Life," writes Carol S. Manning in her Afterword to this new paperback edition, is "a jewel of American literature and deserves recognition as a masterpiece of the Southern Renaissance." It is a remarkably unsentimental look at the old South, a society that blindly holds to past values enforced by a strict code of conduct, being overtaken by the new age of industrialization.
The woman within by Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow ( Book )
23 editions published between 1944 and 1994 in English and held by 1,505 libraries worldwide
Long out of print and now brought back with a substantial and provocative feminist introduction, The Woman Within is a haunting and carefully crafted revelation of a major novelist's inner life. Placed in the context of current discussions of women's autobiography, the Ellen Glasgow who worked on The Woman Within from around 1934 until her death in 1945 speaks strongly - and surprisingly sympathetically - to readers today.
