An Arrow in a Sunbeam

Book cover
An Arrow in a Sunbeam and Other Tales (c. 1880) is a collection of children's stories by Sarah Orne Jewett, Frances Lee and Reverend C. S. Sleight. Sarah Orne Jewett (1849-1909) who also wrote under the pen name Alice Eliot was an American novelist and short story writer best known for her local colour works. She published her first important story in the Atlantic Monthly at age 19, and her reputation grew throughout the 1870s and '80s. Her literary importance arises from her careful, if subdued, vignettes of country life that reflect a contemporary interest in local colour rather than plot. Her most characteristic works include the novella The Country of the Pointed Firs (1896), A Country Doctor (1884), a novel about a New England girl who rejects marriage to become a doctor, and The White Heron (1886), a collection of short stories. Some of Jewett's poetry was collected in Verses (1916), and she wrote three children's books. Frances Lee also wrote False Shame (1866).
