Reviews of : Lena Rivers by Mary J. Holmes PDF Book
Inside this Book – Such melodrama! So many manipulative characters! So many machinations and secretive goings-on leading to marriages that should never have taken place and others that are nearly prevented from taking place but turn out happily, if melodramatically, after all. I was drawn to this book because my grandmother’s younger sister was named Lena Rivers Routh. I never knew why her middle name was Rivers, but about 15 years ago I found a list of books she’d read for a high school English class. It included the title Lena Rivers. I began to think my great aunt might have been named after the title character and that the book could have been one of her mother’s favorites. I sent for the book via interlibrary loan and read it, but I remembered very little about it from this reading. A couple of months ago, I found a copy in very nice condition in an antique store and was happy to buy it for my own collection.
Inside this book –Lena Rivers PDF Book by Mary J. Holmes – This novel was originally written in 1856, right before the Civil War. It was a great read, with five female fainting spells and even one male fainting. It would make a great melodrama play. If you want to read some authentic turgid prose and get transported back to the 1850’s, this is your book. According to the Dictionary of Literary Biography, this orphan narrative was Holmes’ greatest commercial success. “The orphan theme aside, ‘Lena Rivers is significant as one of the best examples of Holmes’s attention to regional custom, dialect, and setting. Though Holmes is more of a sentimental novelist than local colorist or literary realist, she flavors her tales with details culled from her youth, effectively infusing her fiction with a distinct authenticity.”
