Praise for Women of Fair Hope

About the Book
Preview book
The charm of Women of Fair Hope resembles that of treasured stories . . . If, in writing of the lives of Nancy Lewis, Marie Howland, and Marietta Johnson, Gaston is recreating three lives and telling three touching stories, he is also very gently—almost too gently—saying something about the nature, limits, and interweaving of different women’s experiences in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Each of these women was extraordinary and significant, each a woman of courage, determination, imagination . . . Gaston has offered his readers a small jewel.
Gaston is a magnificent storyteller.
