"Eliza Orne White wrote over 40 books, the most popular of which were aimed at young girls, despite lacking the educational background that might be expected of a such prolific author. Born in 1856, she attended public schools in Keene, New Hampshire, and a boarding school in Massachusetts, but childhood illnesses interrupted her studies; eye trouble caused her to miss a year of school when she was 14, and an attack of typhoid two years later prevented her from graduating. Nevertheless, as a child of educated parents—her father William Orne White was a Unitarian minister who had graduated from Harvard, and her mother Margaret Harding White , the daughter of portrait painter Chester Harding, had attended Elizabeth Palmer Peabody 's school—she developed a strong interest in writing. Her father frequently read aloud to her from Homer, Spenser, and Dickens (whom they also heard lecture during one of his visits to the U. S. ) , and her mother encouraged her in and was delighted by all her creative efforts." (from Encyclopedia -dot-com)
