Harriet Beecher Stowe

A Biography
A non fiction book by

"So this is the little lady who made this big war," marvelled Abraham Lincoln when he first met Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Noel Gerson explores the life of this fascinating woman who literally changed the course of American history with her book Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Harriet Beecher Stowe reveals a towering literary figure who was also a remarkable woman, a crusading feminist, and a woman who led a life more dramatic than anything she wrote.

In an age when women were usually confined to the kitchen, the bedroom, and the parlour, Harriet Beecher Stowe argued emancipation with President Lincoln, had an extraordinary woman-to-woman relationship with Queen Victoria, and was regarded by Emile Zola as a comrade-in-arms in their separate crusades for a better world.

Her super-abundant energy and refreshing humour enabled her to combine the duties of a devoted wife and mother of five with a renowned literary career and to become in the process one of the greatest celebrities of the nineteenth century.

'Harriet Beecher Stowe' is an impressive biography of a literary giant who changed the course of history forever.
