Often characterized as Sweden's Charlotte Brontė, Fredrika Bremer was widely translated during her lifetime and became internationally acclaimed as the author of an impressive series of novels and travel books. The Colonel's Family first appeared as Sketches from Daily Life (1830). Her novel, now recognized as a sensitive exploration of the life of a frustrated woman, is written in what is unexpectedly modern experimental prose. ""Her portrayal of a household full of women whose personalities are shaped by the marital conventions of their time suggests a Scandinavian Jane Austen; and in her use of an irreverent female servant as narrator and central consciousness, Bremer infuses this otherwise simplistic melodrama with an intriguingly modern feminist slant."" Kirkus Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews:

The Colonel's Family ($24.95 paperback original; June 10, 1996; 240 pp.; 1-870041-31-3). An early (1831) work of domestic realism by the once-popular novelist and social critic (180165) who was known as ``the Swedish Charlotte Bront‰.'' In fact, her portrayal of a household full of women whose personalities are shaped by the marital conventions of their time suggests a Scandinavian Jane Austen; and in her use of an irreverent female servant as narrator and central consciousness, Bremer infuses this otherwise simplistic melodrama with an intriguingly modern feminist slant. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP.
