"Eliza Woodson, a revision of My Early Days [1859], an autobiographical novel treating Farnham's life as a foster child in a home where she was treated as a household drudge and denied the benefits of a formal education. The fictional heroine reflects Farnham's own character as a tough, determined individual who works hard to achieve her goals, overcoming all obstacles." [per the 'novelguide' website].
