Overview

The story is told in the most leisurely manner, and it certainly is not the author's fault if the reader is not intimately acquainted with the river and with almost the entire crew and passenger list of the Votaress before closing the book. The plot is complicated and there are some dramatic scenes, although certain incidents, especially the appearance of Harriet in Ramsey's place, strike one as a little far-fetched.

About the Author

George Washington Cable (October 12, 1844 - January 31, 1925) was an American novelist notable for the realism of his portrayals of Creole life in his native New Orleans, Louisiana. He has been called "the most important southern artist working in the late 19th century", as well as "the first modern southern writer." In his treatment of racism, mixed-race families and miscegenation, his fiction has been thought to anticipate that of William Faulkner.
