She was born in Randolph, Massachusetts on October 31, 1852, to Eleanor Lothrop and Warren Edward Wilkins, who originally baptized her as "Mary Ella." Freeman's parents were orthodox Congregationalists, causing her to have a very strict childhood.Religious constraints play a key role in some of her works. In 1867, the family moved to Brattleboro, Vermont, where Freeman graduated from the local high school before attending attended Mount Holyoke College (then, Mount Holyoke Female Seminary) in South Hadley, Massachusetts, for one year, from 1870-71. She later finished her education at Glenwood Seminary in West Brattleboro. When the family's dry goods business in Vermont failed in 1873, the family returned to Randolph, Massachusetts. Freeman's mother died three years later, and she changed her middle name to "Eleanor" in her memory.[3] Freeman's father died suddenly in 1883, leaving her without any immediate family and an estate worth only $973. She moved in with a friend and began writing as her only source of income.[ During a visit to Metuchen, New Jersey in 1892, she met Dr. Charles Manning Freeman, a non-practicing medical doctor seven years younger than she. After years of courtship and delays, the two were married on January 1, 1902. Immediately after, she firmly established her name as "Mary E. Wilkins Freeman," which she asked Harper's to use on all of her work.[4] The couple built a home in Metuchen, where Freeman was known as a local celebrity for her writing, despite having occasionally published satirical fictional representations of her neighbors

Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run. Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface-not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died. With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller.

Most American readers have only heard of Aesop's Fables, as he is the most prominent fable writer. But there were three major regions of the world that produced prolific fables: China, Greece and India. This book is an English translation of a Chinese collection of fables from editor Gao Jing Xuan. While most fables use animals as their main characters, this book is unique in that it uses plants to teach moral lessons. The fables included are from both modern and classical Chinese authors. In Fables and Plants, we emphasize plants because they are often not given the same attention in fables as animals. But plants were created by God before He created animals and human beings. Plants are also colorful, beautiful and fragrant and can provide great comfort and pleasure to humans. The Three Friends of Winter (bamboo, pine and plum) and Four Gentleman's Flowers (Orchid in Spring, Lotus in summer, Chrysanthemum in the Fall and Plum in the winter) were highly praised and loved by Chinese poets and artists. All of these plants were included in these stories.
