In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Comfortand Mirth a novel by Lori Joan Swick Swick Advance Praise for Comfort and Mirth “. . . a lovely story, with a fine sense of time and pace, a peachy surprise at the end, and a satisfying resonance that makes the reader want to savor it and thumb back through the pages . . .An interesting, engrossing read.” Shelby Hearon, author of A Prince of a Fellow,The Second Dune, Ella in Bloom, TheYear of the Dog, and many others L ori Joan Swick was born and raised in Austin where she teaches religion, mythology, and moral studies at St. Edward's University . While she is a published poet, Comfort and Mirth is her first novel. The story was inspired by her research in Central Texas history— especially during the first "wave" of feminism when Texas women fought for the right to vote. It was developed through her love of the traditional women's arts and her fascination with the natural powers of motherly instincts and womanly wisdom.
