I wish I had been more familiar with HB Stowe's "Christian perspective" writing at an earlier age. I recently re-read Uncle Tom's Cabin as a mature, Christian adult and there is so much that was missed as a teenage public school reader. So, now that I have read Pink and White..., I regret missing this as a younger parent to make it required reading for my teen children -- a book for today, that is still relevant to read together and discuss with them as a Christian family. Choices made from the characters in this story brought heartache, and divorce was not considered to escape an unhappy life---On one hand self-sacrifices were made and kept, and on the other hand, the end brought regret, sorrow and repentance on the realization that one had led a self-centered, selfish, wasted life and the toll it had taken. There maybe readers who read this as a very moralizing old-fashion tale, but for the Christian reader who understands significance of commitments and the cross of Christ, and all it entails, this is "a good read" meaningful for today.

"Pink Tyranny" is a remarkable story of a self-centered gold digging girl and how she ultimately winds up with the ill-fated man she weds. Harriet Beecher Stowe brilliantly showcases her writing talents in this novel with her clear writing style and light humor. It's unfortunate that Stowe is mainly known for "Uncle Tom's Cabin," "Pink Tyranny" helps to reveal to fervent readers the diverse topics on which she wrote that were important in the 19th century. I found this novel to be greatly and duly instructive, although it is almost unbearably preachy.

"Love, my dear ladies, is self-sacrifice; it is a life out of self and in another. Its very essence is the preferring of the comfort, the ease, the wishes of another to one's own, for the love we bear them. Love is giving, and not receiving. Love is not a sheet of blotting-paper or a sponge, sucking in every thing [sic] to itself; it is an out-springing fountain, giving from itself."

"Loving to be admired by a man, loving to be petted by him, loving to be caressed by him, and loving to be praised by him, is not loving a man.

Stowe brilliantly depicts the character of a beautiful, self-centered woman and her husband's slow realization of what she is. However, the point of the story is to defend the moral sanctity of marriage; i.e, all is well in the end because the husband continues to honor and support this petulant, boring, selfish woman who finally dies, realizing her flaws at the very end of her life.

Not the book's fault--I was just too busy to get into a novel from this time period.

Although I still look forward to reading it I was not prepared for the old type set printed pages. Looks like someone typed it on an old manual typewriter in their basement somewhere and decided to sell copies. The content however is real reason for purchase so I'll get past the fluff!

The plot was good and it was interesting to read about life in the time period but the narrator spent way too much time talking to the reader and preaching about moral behavior instead of advancing the story

This book really touched my heart! Every word rang true, and I wish I had read it at an earlier point in my life, when I really needed this kind of wisdom. It flies in the face of all the lies we have been fed about love and happiness. This is a book that I will read over and over, and recommend often.
Pink and White Tyranny by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published by MobileReference (mobi).

A funny, marvelous tale of an empty-headed, gold digging girl and the unfortunate man she marries. Try to find an edition with the original ink drawings, which add much to the period flavor. Those familiar with Stowe only from Uncle Tom's Cabin will be amazed by her talent as a light humorist.
