1894. Burnham is the author of many works of fiction. The Opened Shutters is among one of her most successful novels that espouse the teachings of Christian Science. Interestingly, Sweet Clover is one of many books inspired by the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 (The Emerald City of Oz was inspired by Baum's visit to the White City). The novel features teenaged Clover Bryant, who, with an invalid mother, two younger sisters, and a brother to support, decides on a marriage of convenience to the elderly and rich Mr. Van Tassel. Mr. Van Tassel's son Jack, who loves Clover himself, departs for Europe, returning only after his father's death. These events enable the author to write what is considered to be one of the most accurate and complete accounts of the Columbian Exposition ever written in novel form.
