Sarah Orne Jewett was a voracious reader all her life. In an 1883 letter to her partner Annie Fields, she wrote, “Today I have been reading hard… and I feel as if I had been over-eating with my head!!!” – Sarah Orne Jewett (Letter to Annie Fields, 1883), Letters of Sarah Orne Jewett, edited by Annie Fields (1911).
