: 1925. Kathleen Norris was a writer of romantic novels and short stories that had enormous appeal, particularly to women. A favorite theme involved virtuous women grappling with moral issues, for instance, affairs with married men. Her writings were labeled as sentimental and honest. In Noon, Norris writes an autobiographical sketch of her childhood, which involved a change in the family's financial circumstances. From Chapter I: We cooked, cleaned, labored, worried, planned, we wept and laughed, we groaned and we sang-for we never despaired. All this was but a passing phase; we will certainly laugh at this someday, we all said buoyantly, laughing even then. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
