The Fairchild family by Mary Martha Sherwood( Book )
24 editions published between 1818 and 2012 in English and held by 95 libraries worldwide
The Fairchild Family is a quintessential representation of Mary Martha Sherwood's style and goals as a writer. The series follows the Fairchild family as they attempt to live godly lives. The book is divided into three parts. The first section deals with the family's sins which range from greed to jealousy to disobedience. Once the children in the family realize their sins, they are able to be redeemed. There are several deaths throughout the story which are meant to represent each character's understanding of redemption. The death of a little girl who plays with candles and burns up suggests that her disobedience causes her damnation. Oppositely, the near-death experience of a boy named Charles insinuates his redemption. The second and third sections of the book show readers how to behave morally in practical situations. These sections explain philanthropy and one's duty to the poor. The Fairchild Family was immensely popular during Sherwood's life, but changing literary tastes around the mid-19th century began to favor fantasy in children's literature rather than Sherwood's didactic style
