Marie Blythe

Howard Frank Mosher

Howard Frank Mosher was one of the best-loved writers of northern New England. One of his most vivid and memorable characters is Marie Blythe. At the dawn of the twentieth century, a young girl immigrates to Vermont from French Canada. She grows up confronting the grim realities of life with an indomitable spirit—nursing victims of a tuberculosis epidemic, enduring a miscarriage alone in the wilderness, and coping with the uncertainties of love. In Marie Blythe, Mosher has created a strong-minded, passionate, and truly memorable heroine. This edition features a new introduction by novelist Tom Barbash.

Reviews

  • Mosher writes stories, almost folk tales at times, built out of lost and forgotten history, rooted in a strong sense of place, inhabited with colorful characters. His terrain may be specific, but his themes are universal.

  • Mosher has a fine knack for evoking natural beauty-an otter sliding off an icy log, a loon whooping over a dark lake-and he has a convincing sense of adventure.

    Los Angeles Times
  • Mosher is a remarkably good observer of nature as well as a born storyteller.
