    Fanny Herself: A Passionate Instinct was originally published as a serialized story under the title Fanny Herself in The American Magazine from April to November 1917. Jewel Audiobooks is proud to present the first unabridged edition of this American classic! 
    The story revolves around Fanny Brandeis, starting with her childhood in Winnebago, WI, where her parents run a shop. After Fanny's father dies, her mother Molly must make extremely difficult choices about Fanny's and her brother Theodore's educations. These choices set the course for the entire family throughout their lives. 
     
    Rather than rely on dialogue to advance the plot, noted American author Edna Ferber is an exceptional storyteller who delights the listener with narrative. 
     
    Although the book is now 100 years old, it contains lessons that are still valuable. Like many of us, Fanny must decide whether to pursue wealth or follow her creative dreams. Can she be happy, and will she find love? 
     
    Author Edna Ferber won the Pultizer Prize for Novel in 1925 and may be best known for her book Show Boat, which was adapted into a successful and long-running musical. 
    Look for the companion Kindle ebook containing all of M. Leone Bracker's beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations that accompanied the 1917 magazine series.

    Repeatedly, since returning to the United States, people have asked me, "Why don't you write a book on Korea?" I have invariably replied that it was not necessary, and referred the inquirers to the large work of Dr. Griffis, entitled "Corea, the Hermit Kingdom," which covers the subject in a charming manner.

    "The Iliad is an epic poem in dactylic hexameters, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set in the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of Ilium, by a coalition of Greek States, it tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege" (Summary from Wikipedia)

Scowl back at the cringe-worthy Wackford Squeers, and laugh at the histrionics of the Crummels Family. While Ralph Nickleby shows you the evils that money can bring, the Cheeryble brothers demonstrate the good. And though Nicholas walks through the fire, he also triumphs as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden.
