Musings: The Log-Cabin Lady

"It will probably surprise you to learn that when I was fourteen years old I had never seen a table napkin. My family were pioneers in the Northwest and were struggling for mere existence. There was no time for the niceties of life. And yet, people like my family and myself are worth serving and saving. I have known what it means to lie awake all night, suffering with shame because of some stupid social blunder which had made me appear ridiculous before my husband's family or his friends."

The Log Cabin Lady is an anonymously told American Cinderella story.  A country bumpkin goes to New York and meets a handsome blue blood.  The two fall in love and marry.  But, for Cinderella, that marks the beginning of a very difficult transition from country girl to society girl, one that caused her no end of panic and grief.

To see my thoughts on this book, head to the Project Gutenberg Project blog- hope to see you there!


  1. This sounds intriguing, I am off to check this out!

  2. I just read the review on the other sight. Sounds like the book ended up being a disappointment. I think it could have worked if she had written it in a more straight forward fashion. Too bad!
