About this title

Synopsis:

Winthrop and Elizabeth, the principal characters, embody noble virtue and demonstrate the duties of Christian life and character. As the author once put it, "He who serves God with what costs him nothing, will do very little service, you may depend on it." This is Volume I of the work. Susan Bogert Warner was an American author of religious fiction, children's fiction, and theologigical works. Writing as "Elizabeth Wetherall," she wrote over thirty novels. Her first, The Wide, Wide World, was most popular, and was translated into French, German and Dutch. She also wrote with her younger sister Anna Bartlett Warner and the sisters wrote Christian songs.

About the Author:

Susan Bogert Warner (1819 - 1885), was an American evangelical writer of religious fiction, children's fiction and theological works. Warner could trace her lineage back to the Puritans on both sides. Her father was Henry Warner, a New York City lawyer originally from New England and her mother was Anna Bartlett, from a wealthy, fashionable family in New York's Hudson Square. When Warner was a young child, her mother died and her father's sister Fanny came to live with the Warners. Although Henry Warner had been a successful lawyer, he lost most of his fortune in the Panic of 1837 and in subsequent lawsuits and poor investments. The family had to leave their mansion at St. Mark's Place in New York and move to an old Revolutionary War-era farmhouse on Constitution Island, near West Point, NY. In 1849, seeing little change in their family's financial situation, Susan and her sister Anna started writing to earn income.
