The Women of the House

Jane Anne Mallet Settle

About the Book
The Women of the House is a trilogy of life stories of women from three generations of one Georgia family. Author Jane Anne Mallet Settle, a fourth generation "woman of the house" and a witness to many chapters, spent two decades sifting through a wealth of their papers, letters, and photographs. She provides a uniquely detailed and well documented  account of the happiness they find in friendships, marriages, babies, and promising careers that carries them through the hardships caused by events from the Civil War through the Great Depression, twentieth-century wars, the sorrows of the premature deaths of children, and the challenges of surviving independently when widowed before middle age. The foundation of their strength is an intangible inspiring life philosophy passed from one generation to the next and symbolized by a tangible link—Heritage—the Jackson, Georgia, home in which their lives were set for more than one hundred years.
