Beschreibung(LARGE PRINT EDITION) 1873. Two Volumes in One. Edwards enjoyed three separate careers: as a journalist, a novelist, and an Egyptologist. She was also an active supporter of the suffrage movement, serving at one time as Vice President of the Society for Promoting Women's Suffrage. Amelia Edwards never married, but lived and traveled for much of her life with a female companion. Though she was a popular novelist, today you are most likely to come across her tales of travel. Her novel In the Days of My Youth begins: Sweet, secluded, shady Saxonholme! I doubt if our whole England contains another hamlet so quaint, so picturesquely irregular, so thoroughly national in all its rustic characteristics. It lies in a warm hollow environed by hills. Woods, parks, and young plantations clothe every height and slope for miles around, whilst here and there, peeping down through green vistas, or towering above undulating seas of summer foliage, stands many a fine old country mansion, turreted and gabled, and built of that warm red brick that seems to hold the light of the sunset long after it has faded from the rest of the landscape.
