Edgewater People by Mary E Wilkins Freeman

Edgewater People by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman is a compelling portrait of small-town life in late 19th century America. The novel centers around the inhabitants of Edgewater, a close-knit community grappling with the complexities of social class, family relationships, and personal ambitions.

Freeman’s writing is rich with detail and nuance, bringing the world of Edgewater to life with vivid descriptions and well-drawn characters. The dynamics between the various families in the town are particularly well-crafted, showcasing the tension and drama that can arise within even the most seemingly idyllic settings.

One of the novel’s strengths is its exploration of gender roles and expectations, with female characters in particular struggling against societal norms and limitations.
