This novel, published in 1898, tells the story of four carefree young women, all physically indistinguishable from white women, off for a vacation at a Massachusetts resort - a vacation that ultimately leads to their struggle for salvation and their commitment to Christian service. Combining conventions from spritual autobiography with those of the sentimental novel, the book sets off on an evangelical mission aimed at showing readers how they should live.

"In Four Girls at Cottage City Kelley combines conventions from spiritual autobiography with those of the sentimental novel...her aim...was to show readers how they should live....It is...fruitful to see Kelley as one precursor of the spiritual feminism that is currently resonating throughout contemporary Afro-American women's fiction..."--Deborah E.
