Overview

Susan Bogert Warner was an American author of religious fiction, children's fiction, and theological 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. The Warners could trace their ancestry to the Pilgrims. Their father, Henry Warner, was a successful lawyer who lost most of his fortune in the Panic of 1837. The sisters turned to writing to earn money in 1849.

Mostly set in Set in Queechy, Vermont, Queechy tells of the orphan Fleda Ringan. She has been sent to Paris after her grandfather's death, to live with her aunt, Mrs. Rossiter. She is under the care of Mrs. Carleton, a rich Englishwoman. She falls in love with Mrs. Carleton's son, and converts him to Christianity. The Rossiters suffer financial reverses, and return to America. Fleda must support her family through farming, cooking, and making maple sugar. Carleton is always present and helping, but never declares his feelings for Fleda. Does he return her love? Will the couple be united?
