Brave Escape of Edith Wharton by Connie Norhielm Woolridge
Woolridge, Connie Norhielm, The Brave Escape of Edith Wharton. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010. INFORMATION.
How did Edith Wharton go from an upper-class New York family to being a famous author? How did she overcome preconceived society notions and follow her heart? This book is the story of her life and how she wrote some of her most famous works.
A fairly great layout, easy-to-follow text, and great photo inclusions. Readers who like biographies or need a biography for school will find this book useful. EL(4-6), MS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Service Librarian, WHI Public Library.
