Standing Her Ground Summary

Standing Her Ground: Classic Short Stories by Trailblazing Women by Harriet Sanders

All the stories in Standing Her Ground have been chosen to celebrate the skill, the passion and achievements of women writers spanning one hundred years of innovation.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is edited by Harriet Sanders.

Edith Wharton was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for literature. Writer and activist Alice Dunbar Nelson was an early adopter of the Harlem Renaissance movement. Kate Chopin and Elizabeth Gaskell dared to explore themes outside the strict social codes of their times. And Virginia Woolf was hugely influential in both the feminist and modernist movements.

From 'The Manchester Marriage', in which a husband, supposedly drowned at sea, returns to find his daughter, to the two sisters who are comically adrift after the death of their domineering father in 'The Daughters of the Late Colonel', and a young girl who enlists the help of a sorceress to win back her boyfriend in 'The Goodness of Saint Rocque', Standing Her Ground showcases nine groundbreaking women writers.
