Poganuc People by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, based this book on her own experience growing up in the village of Litchfield, Connecticut. A contemporary of Mary Baker Eddy’s, Stowe’s fictional account of her early years has much to offer students of Mrs. Eddy’s life, including poetic descriptions of rural New England, a glimpse into the religion and politics of an early 19th-century town, and charming views of a close-knit family much like the Bakers of Bow, New Hampshire.
