Late nineteenth century novel about Edna Earl, an intelligent and ambitious young girl with a strong moral compass. Orphaned at a young age, Edna is adopted by Mrs. Murray. Edna encounters numerous conflicts with Mrs. Murray's son, the Byronic St. Elmo, a harsh, cruel man with a dark past. Edna's sweet nature touches the lives of many around her, and her ambition causes her to strive for nearly unattainable heights. Throughout the novel, Edna faces a constant battle between her passions and her conscience. In the end, Edna's convictions and her love act as a redeeming force to a suffering, desolate soul
Beulah by Augusta J Evans( Book )

130 editions published between 1857 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "nineteenth-century domestic novel [which] focuses on the typically circumscribed life of a young southern woman ...The plot of Beulah follows the uneven fortunes of the orphaned Beulah Benton from her early teens to young adulthood. Beulah's determined quest for independence leads her into the shifting sands of skepticism, doubt, and anxiety. Her struggles cause her to wrestle with many of the great theological, moral, and intellectual questions of the day before finally regaining her faith... though it did not overtly deal with slavery, the novel served as an expression of and an apology for southern values and customs"--GoodReads

The town-clock was on the last stroke of twelve, the solitary candle measured but two inches from its socket, and as the summer wind rushed through the half-closed shutters, the melted tallow dripped slowly into the brightly-burnished brazen candlestick. The flickering light fell upon the pages of a ledger, and flashed fitfully in the face of the accountant, as he bent over his work. Sixteen years growth had given him unusual height and remarkable breadth of chest, and it was difficult to realize that the stature of manhood had been attained by a mere boy in years. A grey suit (evidently home-made), of rather coarse texture, bespoke poverty; and, owing to the oppressive heat of the atmosphere, the coat was thrown partially off. He wore no vest, and the loosely-tied black ribbon suffered the snowy white collar to fall away from the throat and expose its well-turned outline. The head was large, but faultlessly proportioned, and the thick black hair, cut short and clinging to the temples, added to its massiveness

St. Elmo was the most famed and beloved novel by Augusta Jane Evans, a June 2015 inductee into the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame. First published in 1866, Evans's rich tale of the relationship between the dashing and worldly St. Elmo and Edna Earl, an exemplar of virtuous Southern womanhood, sold over a million copies in four months and became one of the nineteenth century's most influential novels. This edition includes an introduction by Evans scholar Diane Roberts about the enduring relevance and legacy of St. Elmo as a work of literature as well as a reflection of gender roles and the seismic societal changes taking place in the United States in the aftermath of the Civil War
