In 1875 Mary Edwards Bryan returned to Atlanta to work at The Sunny South. Chapter 12 relates the circumstances of her life for the next five years, including the whiffs of scandal that greeted her in Georgia, her increasing disenchantment with publisher John H. Seals, and her deepening friendship with Mary Sanders Seals. The authors follow Mary’s establishment of her Azalea Farm homestead in the suburb of Clarkston, Georgia; the evolution of her family life and the marriage of her daughters; and her increasing commitment to causes such as the prevention of cruelty to animals and forest conservation. The chapter concludes with the 1880 publication of her novel Manch by D. Appleton and Company and its popular reception by critics and readers across the nation.
