The Pastor's Wife

The Pastor's Wife by Elizabeth von Arnim
By: (1866-1941)

A tale about a young woman, freed up from the bonds of her family life, to wonder all around in search of all things feminist. The story seems somewhat autobiographical, surrounded in disillusionment and humor. Written on the eve of World War I and just back from married life in Germany.
