Tempest and sunshine, or, Life in Kentucky by Mary Jane Holmes( Book )

74 editions published between 1800 and 2011 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most common returning themes in Mary J. Holmes novels is that of two sisters-- one of whom is superficially more beautiful but is selfish and cold-hearted while the second sister is less beautiful but is warm and giving. Tempest and Sunshine makes that struggle central to its plot by pitting the sweet and guileless Fanny against her scheming sister Julia. Most reminiscent of Bad Hugh, Tempest and Sunshine continues the Holmes tradition of slightly skewing the expected storyline. Her bad sister is not all bad, and Holmes makes clear that the blame for her badness is not entirely hers. [Amazon]
