Friendship Village Love Stories: To those who found a rare and lingering delight in the delicate artistry of Miss Zona Gale's Friendship Village, her new volume of Friendship Village Love Stories will need no special introduction. We meet again the same old friends, together with a few others, none the less welcome because they are new; and we bask for a few pleasant hours in that exhilarating human sunshine that radiates straight from the heart of people who are real and true and big of soul. Friendship Village may have no definite location upon the printed map of the world; but it abides permanently in the memories of countless readers who in the enjoyment of its chronicles have been able temporarily to forget the latitude and longitude of their own personal cares and sorrows. Let us by all means give cordial welcome to this new installment to the end that still others may follow stint (Frederic Taber Cooper, The Bookman, March - August, 1910).

About the Author

Zona Gale (August 26, 1874 – December 27, 1938) was an American author and playwright. Gale was born in Portage, Wisconsin, which she often used as a setting in her writing. She attended Wayland Academy in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and later entered the University of Wisconsin–Madison, from which she received a Bachelor of Literature degree in 1895, and four years later a master's degree.

After college, Gale wrote for newspapers in Milwaukee and New York City, for six years. A visit to Portage in 1903 proved a turning point in her literary life, as seeing the sights and sounds of town life led her to comment that her 'old world was full of new possibilities.' Gale had found the material she needed for her writing, and returned to Portage in 1904 to concentrate full time on fiction. She wrote and published there until her 1938 death, but made trips to New York.

In 1928 at the age of fifty-four she married William L. Breese, also of Portage. Gale died of pneumonia in a Chicago hospital in 1938.
