Mary Johnston (1870-1936)

Mary Johnston was a self-taught author and suffragette from Virginia. A reversal of family fortune motivated her writing career. Johnston's adventure romances led to bestsellers and a loyal national audience. "To Have and To Hold" (1900) was subsequently made into a film. Readers loved her historical settings. The novel "Hagar" (1913) became her major feminist work. But her later years showed an increasing mysticism, which alienated many of her readers. She spent the last fifteen years of her life trying to recapture her audience.
