"Henrietta Athon Morrison was the daughter of the prominent Indiana politician Dr. James S. Athon. A native of Indianapolis, she wrote sketches and poems for local newspapers. In this, her only book, she barely represses her bitterness while discussing the role of women. She resents the imposition of male rule and "the woman's place being in the kitchen" and strikes out in a crisp tone to assert, as a last resort that women should be allowed unaltered control of all phases of home life. If woman is queen of the home, then she should reign. The author dedicates the book, "To Dan L. Payne, the man who is good enough to be a woman." A tiny bit of foxing, otherwise fine, in blind- and gilt-decorated dark green cloth." -- description from Rabelais Inc., bookseller.
