Publisher's Summary

Fanny Herself: A Passionate Instinct was originally published as a serialized story under the title "Fanny Herself" in The American Magazine from April to November 1917. Jewel Audiobooks is proud to present the first unabridged edition of this American classic on Audible!

The story revolves around Fanny Brandeis, starting with her childhood in Winnebago, WI, where her parents run a shop. After Fanny's father dies, her mother Molly must make extremely difficult choices about Fanny's and her brother Theodore's educations. These choices set the course for the entire family throughout their lives.

Rather than rely on dialogue to advance the plot, noted American author Edna Ferber is an exceptional storyteller who delights the listener with narrative.

Although the book is almost 100 years old, it contains lessons that are still valuable. Like many of us, Fanny must decide whether to pursue wealth or follow her creative dreams. Can she be happy, and will she find love?

Author Edna Ferber won the Pultizer Prize for Novel in 1925 and may be best known for her book Show Boat, which was adapted into a successful and long-running musical.

Look for the companion Kindle ebook containing all of M. Leone Bracker's beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations that accompanied the 1917 magazine series.
