Mildred's Married Life

by Martha Finley

The story is set in the United States of America between the 1830s and 1860s. Mildred is the eldest child of Stuart and Marcia Keith (née Stanhope), and has several younger siblings: Rupert, Zillah, Ada, Eva (who died at age five, before the first book begins), Cyril, Don, Fan and Annis. She is in her teens when the series opens, and by the end her own children are in their teens and twenties. It was one of a series of late 19th century books including Little Women, Elsie Dinsmore, and the Chautauqua Girls that promoted more traditional behavior for young women, focusing on how to be "Christian citizens and mothers, contributing to their communities through philanthropy and social reform."
