Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a century almost continually at odds with the proper place of females, Catherine Esther Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Isabella Beecher Hooker shared a commitment to women's power. Although they did not always agree on the nature of that power, each in her own way—Catherine as educator and author of advice literature; Harriet as author of novels, tales, and sketches; and Isabella as a women's rights advocate—devoted much of her adult life to elevating women's status and expanding women's influence.

Synopsis:

Focusing on the lives of the three remarkable Beecher sisters, 'The Limits of Sisterhood' chronicles the astonishing range of activities that engaged the energies of white, middle-class women in nineteenth-century America.
