When her father leaves and mother becomes ill, a girl is sent to live with a distant relative where she learns some hard life lessons. The girl encounters both good and bad people, but maintains her Christian values. Ellen Montgomery's life drastically changes when she's forced to move in with her estranged Aunt Fortune. The environment is cold and oppressive, a stark comparison to her mother's comforting home. Despite the changes, Ellen explores her new community making several friends along the way. As the years pass, she experiences sickness, death and eventually love. She uses her faith to guide her through many unexpected trials and tribulations. Ellen's story is a testament to a person's ability to stay kind and optimistic no matter the circumstance. The Wide, Wide World was Susan Warner's first and biggest commercial success. It is considered a fixture in the domestic genre showcasing the growing pains of womanhood. Aside from Uncle Tom's Cabin, Warner's was one of the most circulated novels of its time. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Wide, Wide World is both modern and readable.
