Read full description of the books The Minister's Wooing:This one is definately in the top ten for me. I love this book and will continue to reread it throughout my life, when I need to feel connected and valued and not alone as a women and mother. Stowe is magical in her ability to elevate the ordinary woman in this tale. Stowe gives the power to the woman and her brave ability to be personal. She reminds us that "where theorists and philosophers tread with sublime arrurance, women often follow with bleeding footsteps - women are always turning from the abstract to the individual and feeling where the philosopher only thinks." She blurs the lines between the solemn and the trivial, elevating all that is in the daily life of a woman...and does it with amazing wit and beauty! You cannot leave mortality without reading this book.
Read information about the authorHarriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe was an American author and abolitionist, whose novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) attacked the cruelty of slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential, even in Britain. It made the political issues of the 1850s regarding slavery tangible to millions, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North. It angered and embittered the South. The impact is summed up in a commonly quoted statement apocryphally attributed to Abraham Lincoln. When he met Stowe, it is claimed that he said, "So you're the little woman that started this great war!"
