While known primarily as a novelist, Howells' short story Editha (1905) appears in many anthologies of American literature. Editha is a young and very patriotic young landy. Her lover, George, is not quite as enthused about her my country right or wrong attitude, but she convinces him to join the army to fight a just war. The results of this decision are very unexpected and very thought provoking. This is a very powerful story and is more the type of writing one would expect from the Vietnam War era, rather than the end of the Victorian era. Download and start listening now!

    " This was the tiniest little book (4x6 maybe). A forward by Richard Paul Evans (I hadn't remembered this Christmas Every Day story being read by the Dad in his novel The Christmas Box). A timeless Christmas story of old (1908 last printing), maybe the oldest story I've read, after the Bible! "

    " A fun quick read. I think I was expecting more from it but it was cute, especially to see the funny interaction between father and daughter. A sweet message about the relationships you can have with your children. "
