Set in the heart of the great, romantic wilderness called the Western Reserve. Brings into permanent focus the joys, frustrations, and rewards of men and women who live close to the soil. It spans the lives of four generations of Americans: from the idealistic and impulsive Colonel MacDougal, who builds the farm and makes it prosper, to his guilt-ridden descendant, Johnny, who leaves the farm to journey forth and fight in World War I. It is a story of courage, passion, and folly- a story of those who force the land to yield and flourish, and those who turn away from its harvest only to be deceived and corrupted by industry and city
Early autumn : a story of a lady by Louis Bromfield( Book )

127 editions published between 1926 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1927 Pulitzer Prize winner is a richly crafted character study of an old New England family at the end of its influence and name-carrying tradition. Olivia Pentland is trapped in a loveless marriage to Anson Pentland, the self-absorbed authority on Pentland family history. Languishing in the home is frail Jack Pentland, the fifteen year-old heir to the family name and fortune. Isolated in a far wing upstairs is "her" the nameless and addled wife of old John Pentland, the reigning monarch of the family. She alone is privey to a family secret which if known would uproot the Pentland family tree. Other characters are interwoven into this tale of anguish and of loves both lost and found. A real treat for the serious reader of American literature. --Jerry Kelley at Amazon.com
