Today is the birthday of Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Here are four books that together give a rich introduction to her work
(Three of which are available as FREE Kindle ebooks)
Although she is best known for Uncle Tom’s Cabin, she wrote over 30 books.
HT: Rachel Marie Stone for urging us to take a deeper look at Stowe’s work in her Writers on the Classics post for us earlier this year.

$5.99 for Kindle
“This novel deserves to be more popularly known and celebrated. Set in late 18th century New England, and peopled by characters both fictional and historical (including Jonathan Edwards’ notorious grandson Aaron Burr), it examines the differences in how men and women experience American religion while challenging, in a quiet way, the power of a male-dominated clergy and religious establishment.” – Rachel Marie Stone
