Overview

The Kingsley family has been estranged for many, many years. Two of the five boys, Samuel and Sylvester, have not spoken for decades; the same can be said of George and William. The two sisters, Clara and Isabel, are not far behind. It seems the only ones everyone gets along with is the main character, Stephen, and his housekeeper, Mrs. Griggs.

Stephen writes all of his siblings, inviting them to bring their families and spend Christmas with him -- he has a very large house. They probably all come because Mrs. Griggs inserts her own letter along with her employer's. It is only when a near tragedy occurs that the family comes to understand how trivial their feuds with each other actually are.

Included in this Illustrated Edition of the 1912 version of "Brotherly House" is the single original illustrations, rejuvenated, and 10 additional, relevant illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.

About the Author

Grace S. Richmond (née Grace Louise Smith; Pawtucket, Rhode Island, 1866 – 1959) was an American writer. She wrote the "Red Pepper Burns" series of popular novels. Her father was a Baptist clergyman, Charles Edward Smith. As a young lady Grace spent time in Syracuse, New York, and was educated at home with private tutors. In 1887 she married Dr. Nelson Guernsey Richmond of Fredonia, New York.

Grace Richmond's first short story was published in 1891. By 1898 her stories were appearing in various women's magazines including the Women's Home Companion, Ladies' Home Journal and Everybody's Magazine. She wrote 27 novels between 1905 and 1936. Red Pepper Burns was published in 1910. Like most of her strong-willed yet compassionate characters, Redfield Pepper or R.P. Burns is a kind, old-souled country doctor who makes house calls. His fiery red hair and temper to match earned him his nickname Red Pepper, though he is still a charming and endearing gentleman. Mrs. Red Pepper (1913), Red Pepper's Patients (1917), and Red of the Redfields (1924) followed (Wikipedia and http://www.online-literature.com/grace-richmond/).
