The Works of Mary Jane Holmes Classic Novels

(20 Works: Lena Rivers, Aikenside, Bad Hugh, Dora Deane, and More!)


Mary Jane Holmes (April 5, 1825 – October 6, 1907)  was a bestselling and prolific American author who published 39 popular novels, as well as short stories. Her first novel sold 250,000 copies; and she had total sales of 2 million books in her lifetime, second only to Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Portraying domestic life in small town and rural settings, she examined gender relationships, as well as those of class and race. She also dealt with slavery and the American Civil War, with a strong sense of moral justice. Since the late 20th century, she has received fresh recognition and reappraisal, although her popular work was excluded from most 19th-century literary histories compiled by men.
