Did you know that his daughter Rose converted and started the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne.
Yes the story of the Hawthorne's is a mesmerizing one. I'm familiar with the broad outlines but one day would like to read a book about it.
I've never seen this before or somehow I missed it when last paging through "habits of being." I too admire Hawthorne greatly but often I have trouble even forcing myself through some of his larger novels. His short stories I love but his style can be so verbose that his novels leave me panting for breath.
I do wish you'd start quoting again. "More light! More light!"And would Flannery have a blog if she could?
