The gates ajar by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps( Book )

5 editions published between 1869 and 1874 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gates Ajar is a religious novel by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (later Elizabeth Phelps Ward) that was immensely popular following its publication and was the second best-selling religious novel of the 19th century. The novel is presented like a diary by its main protagonist, Mary Cabot, who mourns the death of her brother Royal. Much of the plot is presented as a dialogue about the afterlife between the two characters. The novel represents heaven as being similar to Earth, but better. In contrast with traditions of Calvinism, Phelps's version of heaven is corporeal where the dead have "spiritual bodies", live in houses, raise families, and participate in various activities

Religious poems by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

2 editions published in 1867 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, on June 14th 1811. Over the course of her Life Harriet wrote more than twenty books including travel memoirs and collections of letters and articles. Her stand out work is undoubtedly 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' about the life of African Americans under slavery. It reached millions as both a book and a play and was influential in setting both the tone and the agenda for anti-slavery forces in the North and for unyielding anger in the South. When she was invited to the White House by Lincoln he is rumoured to have said "so you are the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war." In the 1870s, Stowe's brother, Henry Ward, also an abolitionist, was accused of adultery and a national scandal ensured. Harriet fled to Florida unable to bear the attacks on her brother, who she believed innocent. Harriet was among the founders of the Hartford Art School, which later became part of the University of Hartford. She was also influential in the call for women to have a better standing in society and considered the cause as just as necessary as the abolition of slavery. With the death of her husband Calvin Stowe in 1886, after a half century together, Harriet's own health started to decline rapidly. By 1888 it was reported in The Washington Post that due to dementia she had started "writing Uncle Tom's Cabin over again. She imagined that she was engaged in the original composition, and for several hours every day she industriously inscribed long passages of the book, almost word for word, unconsciously from memory, the authoress imagining that she composed the matter as she went along. To her diseased mind the story was brand new and she frequently exhausted herself with labor which she regarded as freshly created." Harriet Beecher Stowe died on July 1, 1896, at age eighty-five in Hartford, Connecticut. She is buried in the historic cemetery at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts

What answer? by Anna E Dickinson( Book )

2 editions published between 1868 and 1869 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the midst of the Civil War, this controversial work traces the tragic history of an interracial marriage, which is doomed to disaster by the intolerance of a Northern society that refuses to accept racial equality. Also lending the story interest are Dickinson's impassioned descriptions of two famous historical incidents - the terrible New York City Draft Riots of July 1863 and the storming of Fort Wagner by the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts, the famed Black infantry regiment. Even more important is the glimpse she provides into the conflicted attitudes of average White Northern citizens toward Blacks after the war. The themes of racial tension and justice give What Answer? enduring value." "This edition of a unique work, long out of print, includes an informative introduction by J. Matthew Gallman, Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College."--Jacket
