The Wide, Wide World by Susan Warner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Exceeded in popularity in its time only by "Uncle Tom's Cabin", this 1850 domestic epic narrates the seven year pilgrimage of a girl sent out into the world at age ten by her dying mother and careless father. Despite being passed from relative to relative, Ellen Montgomery remains faithful to her mother's memory and Christian teachings. As Jane Tompkins notes in her Afterword, this novel by Warner (1819-1865) is "compulsively readable, absorbing, and provoking to an extraordinary degree...More than any other book of its time, it embodies, uncompromisingly, the values of the Victorian era."
