Book cover
By: (1860-1938)

Lady Baltimore by Owen Wister is a captivating novel that takes the reader on a journey to the deep south of Charleston, South Carolina. The story follows the life of a young woman named Hortense, who moves to Charleston after the death of her husband. Hortense quickly becomes immersed in the culture and society of the city, and must navigate the complexities of love, friendship, and social hierarchy.

Wister's writing is rich and descriptive, painting a vivid picture of Charleston in the early 20th century. The characters are well-developed and complex, each with their own struggles and desires. Hortense is a strong and independent protagonist, who must learn to assert herself in a world dominated by men.

The novel is both a love story and a social commentary, touching on important issues such as race, class, and gender. Wister skillfully weaves these themes into the narrative, adding depth and complexity to the story. Overall, Lady Baltimore is a thought-provoking and engaging read that will stay with readers long after they have finished the last page.
