Would you listen to All That Makes Life Bright again? Why?
Probably some day! I connected with the issues raised in the story - balancing family, career, and practicing faith amidst all the obstacles.
What other book might you compare All That Makes Life Bright to and why?
I have read Madeleine L'Engle's autobiographical works (Crosswick Journals) and she records how she managed to find time for writing while also managing family needs, including, in her case, and elderly relative. All done in love.
Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?
Hattie. I loved her inner struggles, as expressed by Ms. Campbell.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Harriet Beecher Stowe: Prolific Writer, Scholar, and Mother.
Any additional comments?
I've been studying the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, and was fascinated with how much she was able to accomplish in her life. I was curious how she did so with several children. I love this book because it neither dismisses motherhood nor career, but wrestles with changing the paradigm to make both callings work.
I loved the book and learned a lot about abolitionism and the historical facts concerning this period. It was also interesting to learn about how things were for women then as opposed to now and how much women did during this time period to change things for women today. Thanks to the author for such a beautiful illustration of the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe! Now I want to read Uncle Tom's Cabin.
