PEMAQUID; OR, A STORY OF OLD TIMES IN NEW ENGLAND

Pemaquid; or, A Story of Old Times in New England by Elizabeth Prentiss.

Kezia is one of the characters in Pemaquid; or, a Story of Old Times in New England, then recently published. She had written it with "indescribable ease and pleasure," to use her own words, mostly during the previous January. The pictures of New England life—especially its religious life—in old times are vivid and faithful; and the character of Kezia Millet for originality, quiet humor, and truth to nature, surpasses any other in her writings, with the exception, perhaps, of Aunt Avery in "Fred and Maria and Me."—The Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss (1882).
