MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sibling Romance in American Fiction, 1835 1900 offers an expansive and engaging look at the brother-sister bond in nineteenth-century American literature." - American Studies

"Van Dette is the first scholar to explore the important issue of brother-sister ties in nineteenth-century American literature. She argues convincingly that domestic fiction writers used the sibling relationship to address the tensions between independence and solidarity during the nation's long crisis of union. Lucid and accessible, this book will be of interest to scholars of American literature, American history, American studies, and family studies." - C. Dallett Hemphill, Ursinus College, USA
