Mrs. Balfame : a novel by Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton( Book )

2 editions published in 1916 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enid Balfame is a respectable, middle-aged woman, who lives a quiet life in a peaceful, sleepy small town. As her marriage turns sour, Enid can see only one way out - a solution to all of her problems, but a decision which will send her down a path of spiritual and personal transformation from which she may never recover. An intriguing and compelling psychological mystery from the renowned author Gertrude Atherton, and a tale which fans of her contemporary Henry James will also enjoy. Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) was an American novelist, short story writer and early feminist. Born in California, Gertrude attended schools in California and Kentucky and became widely read. She married George H.B. Atherton in 1876, and lived with him and his mother in San Francisco, where they had two children. Atherton struggled with married life, her husband did not support her writing ambitions and Gertrude found life as a wife and mother stifling. When her husband died at sea in 1887, Atherton felt free to pursue her burgeoning career as an author and went on to publish over 50 novels. She is best known for her California series of novels which explored the social history of California and included popular works such as 'The Californians' and the controversial 'Black Oxen' which was adapted into a silent movie in 1923. Feminist themes and strong female characters are common in her novels. She died in San Francisco in 1948. [Elib]

Woman and labor by Olive Schreiner( Book )

3 editions published in 1911 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mrs. Schreiner shows that the unrest among women of to-day is due to an unsound basis of life, that for the first time in history a large proportion of women are facing a condition of parasitism, that this conditition is likely to be fatal to the human race, and that it may be remedied. This, with numberless illuminating radiations of thought, is the significant thesis of the book. An unusual feature is that the argument is based not on the rights or happiness of women, but on the welfare of the race as a whole"--Dust jacket
