catherine-bell-van-normanedited by Vicki Gudgeon, 1981. 61 pages, illustrated.
A glimpse into the everyday life of a young wife and mother during six months in 1850. We see her coping not only with her own, eventually fatal illness, but those of her own children, family members and friends. Insights are also gained into Methodist piety including Catherine’s own spiritual struggles, as well as her relationship with her husband and the general routines in the lives of a large, extended family.
