    About the Author

    Olive Higgins Prouty

    Though Olive Higgins Prouty is primarily remembered as a romance novelist, she was also a poet, writing her poetry whenever and wherever she could Her poems were never published during her lifetime, as they were much intimate writings than the novels she wrote professionally Perhaps because she could put of herself into her poetry than in her novels, Prouty s poems are powerful and emotional, revealing ideas radical for the time in which they were written Her children, Richard Prouty and Jane Chapin, published her poems in a very limited release in 1997.Prouty was born in Worcester in 1882 to Katherine Chapin and Milton Prince Higgins, who would raise one of Worcester s most prominent, and one of Worcester Polytechnic Institute s most important, families The Higgins family residence was at the corner of West Street and Salisbury Street, where WPI s Goddard Hall now stands Prouty spent most of her childhood deeply connected to WPI as her father was superintendent of the Washburn shops and supervised its very construction Milton and Katherine Higgins had four children in total, all of whom would go on to make generous contributions to WPI, including Higgins Laboratories, Higgins House, Sanford Riley Hall, a scholarship, and a library fund Milton Higgins was not only prominent in the development of WPI, but he was also an entrepreneur, buying the Norton Emery Wheel Co with George Alden in 1885 and serving as its president until his death in 1912.Prouty s mother was also an active member of the growing Worcester community Katherine was the superintendent of the Sunday school at the First Congregational Church and insisted upon Olive joining the church at age thirteen Katherine was also the founder of the Parent Teachers Association, having spoken in many states for the PTA throughout her lifetime.Prouty was close to her parents despite their busy professional lives, and speaks of her time in Worcester and at WPI with great fondness Though she had an early interest in rhyme, Prouty did not have much early success at school, and the anxiety that resulted was a precursor to nervous troubles that would come later in her life.Nevertheless, Olive Higgins graduated from Smith College in 1904 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and returned to Worcester determined to start a writing career Prouty feared that her marriage to Lewis Prouty would hinder her attempts to write professionally, but Lewis turned out to be supportive and introduced Olive to the editor who would publish her first stories The Proutys moved to Brookline, Massachusetts soon after their marriage in June, 1907.Prouty s first novel Bobbie, General Manager was published in 1913 She tried to keep up with her writing, but by 1920 Prouty was feeling and torn between her writing and her duties to her family As the Proutys were quite prosperous, Olive had trouble balancing the social obligations that came with prosperity with her family obligations and still having time to write When her third daughter Anne died in 1919, she decided to devote herself to the care of her children.Prouty s youngest daughter Olivia was very dear to her, possibly so than her other two surviving children In both her published and unpublished works, she rarely mentioned Richard or Jane, but she wrote quite a bit about Olivia Olivia s death in 1923 of encephalitis devastated Prouty, and the nervous breakdown that resulted led her to spend some time at the Riggs Foundation in Stockbridge, Massachusetts Her psychiatrist, Dr Austen Fox Riggs, encouraged her to treat her writing professionally, and Prouty was immeasurably grateful for the new freedom that afforded her.Stella Dallas, one of Prouty s most famous works, was published around this time It was eventually made into a play in 1924, then a radio serial, and then its first movie incarnation in 1925 In 1937 it was remade with Barbara Stanwyck, and Be

      Lord, this was a good book. Did you know this book was before NOW, VOYAGER! NOW, VOYAGER is a sequel to LISA VALE!I really wished that I had read them in order, because I would have enjoyed NOW, VOYAGER even more than I did.This book centers around Lisa Vale, who befriend Charlotte, from NOW, VOYAGER. Lisa marries her brother, Robert Vale. Lisa and Charlotte met in College.It’s a great story of how people overcome, what Mother’s will do to help their sons, and of Love Lost.I didn’t want th [...]

      An interesting read for anyone interested in society people between the wars. This is the same author who wrote Now Voyager>. It was made into a movie starring Bette Davis. Her charater is Charlotte Vale and shows up in Lisa Vale>, the story of her sister-in-law.

      It took me a while to remember what White Fawn was about, but this is so much of a direct continuation that it's easy to get caught up on the Vales. I'm more sympathetic to Lisa's unhappiness than Fabia's but liked that neither of their relationships are fully resolved at the end. Will probably skip over to Home Port instead of rereading Now, Voyager. "Well, even so, you can't change Dan's way of loving you, Fabia, dear. And I wonder if you can change your way of wanting to be loved. Dan will al [...]
