    Vera, The Medium

    by Richard Harding Davis

    Book Description

    Richard Davis was a famous reporter for the Philadelphia Record in the latter part of the 19th century. He is known for his novels and short stories. While managing editor of the Harper's Weekly he traveled extensively. His experience and impressions gave him material for his writing. His most noted works were Gallegher and Other Stories (1891), Van Bibber and Others (1892), and Ranson's Folly (1902). Vera faces many trials in her life; many involving harsh punishments. She does not fit into the role society thinks she should play. Vera's strength of character and her strong spirit help her to be victorious over a cruel world. Davis presents the reader with a strong role model in Vera.
