The Wide, Wide World

The Wide, Wide World is a work of sentimentalism based on the life of young Ellen Montgomery. The story begins with Ellen’s happy life being disrupted by the fact that her mother is very ill and her father must take her to Europe, requiring Ellen to leave home to live with an almost-unknown aunt. Though Ellen tries to act strong for her mother’s sake, she is devastated and can find solace in nothing.

    Enjoy the spring of love and youth,
    To some good angel leave the rest,
    For time will teach thee soon the truth,
    "There are no birds in last year's nest."
