Atherton, Gertrude: Sleeping Fires. V1. 13 Jun 2011
Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was an American writer. Atherton, was an American Feminist and writer of social and historical fiction, much of it set in California. Although her reputation is founded primarily on her California fiction and essays, as well as her biography of Alexander Hamilton, Atherton also produced a number of Gothic stories, some of them, such as The Bell in the Fog, were considered significant achievements in the Gothic/supernaturalist tradition.
Book Description: Sleeping Fires is a gripping Victorian melodrama about Madeleine, a brilliant young woman from Boston who comes to San Francisco after the Civil War as bride of gruff Dr. Talbot. She soon wearies of her successful role in high society and turns to Langdon Masters, an intellectual and journalist from Virginia who reintroduces her to the world of ideas. This launches a shocking series of events that forces Madeleine to take charge and save them both from self-destruction.
