Story of Waitstill Baxter

by Kate Douglas Wiggin

A homely story in which the two well-contrasted heroines are daughters of an uncommonly mean spirited and miserly old deacon. Each girl revolts in her own way and much to the joy of the reader the deacon is left to retribution in the shape of a fourth wife who is probably "more than a match" for him. The author's well known gifts of characterization, sympathy and humor are all used to create the typical atmosphere of a new England village seventy years ago.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
