Novels and stories by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )

34 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 2,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel A Country Doctor (1884), inspired by both her own life and that of her doctor father, is often read as a veiled autobiography. Her focus here is on a woman who must choose between marriage and her commitment to a medical career, a decision she defends passionately against the narrowness of those around her: "God would not give us the same talents if what were right for men were wrong for women." Jewett's masterpiece, The Country of the Pointed Firs (1896), brings to imaginative life the faded trading port of Dunnet Landing, Maine, re-creating in spare, impressionistic prose the rhythms and textures of a communal society of poor fishermen and farmers, with its traditional country rituals and its stoically endured tragedies. In these linked stories we meet some of Jewett's most unforgettable characters - a woman who withdraws from society to live alone on an island, a retired sea captain haunted by old superstitions, a herb gatherer keeping alive an old knowledge of homeopathic remedies
The country of the pointed firs : and other stories by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )

80 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of an endearing unlikely friendship set against the backdrop of a remote and beautiful Maine coastal town, The Country of the Pointed Firs is one of Sarah Orne Jewett's most loved works, and it quickly earned her a reputation as a talented writer upon its publication. Praised by Alice Brown for its "idyllic atmosphere of country life," Jewett's novel shows her intimate understanding of New England and its unique inhabitants, whose prickly exteriors often concealed a warm and loyal nature." "This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes four additional Dunnet Landing stories: "The Queen's Twin," "A Dunnet Shepherdess," "The Foreigner," and "William's Wedding.""--Jacket
A country doctor by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )

74 editions published between 1884 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the ward of the widowed physician Dr. Leslie, young Nan Prince becomes interested in medicine. But when she enters a medical college, she finds she must choose between marriage and a career as a doctor, between the expectations of society and her duty to her true self. In part an homage to Sarah Orne Jewett's beloved father, A Country Doctor portrays an America on the verge of change and Nan, ultimately, as a courageous young woman with a new world opening to her." "This edition, which reproduces the obituary of her father that Jewett wrote but published anonymously, includes an introduction exploring the rise of women doctors in nineteenth-century America and showing A Country Doctor as a pioneering narrative of a woman passionately following her professional calling."--Jacket
