Read full description of the books:
A touching, moving, powerful story by Gene Stratton-Porter! This book follows Kate Bates, one of sixteen children, as she takes the wings of morning to try for independence and the life she's been denied. This book is unlike Mrs. Porter's A Girl of the Limberlost - which is a favorite of mine as well - but it's a wonderful one in a different way. The characters are quite human and flawed; at times I was inwardly begging Kate not to do such-and-such; but she had my sympathy, the story is amazing and well-written, and I teared up at the end. Won't say what happens, but the end is awesome and touching! :) This book deals with tough subjects. It shows the beauty of love and forgiveness. It shows a picture of the brokenness around us. And it shows how God can make all things work together for good and shed hope and light in the midst of the valley of the shadow.

Read information about the authorShe was an American author, amateur naturalist, wildlife photographer, and one of the earliest women to form a movie studio and production company. She wrote some of the best selling novels and well-received columns in magazines of the day.
Born Geneva Grace Stratton in Wabash County, Indiana, she married Charles D. Porter in 1886, and they had one daughter, Jeannette.
She became a wildlife photographer, specializing in the birds and moths in one of the last of the vanishing wetlands of the lower Great Lakes Basin. The Limberlost and Wildflower Woods of northeastern Indiana were the laboratory and inspiration for her stories, novels, essays, photography, and movies. Although there is evidence that her first book was "Strike at Shane's", which was published anonymously, her first attributed novel, The Song of the Cardinal met with great commercial success. Her novels Freckles and A Girl of the Limberlost are set in the wooded wetlands and swamps of the disappearing central Indiana ecosystems she loved and documented. She eventually wrote over 20 books.
