The Little Hunchback Zia (1915)
A story of the Nativity. Zia is a little hunchback orphan living with an old woman who makes him beg. His wonderful, luminous eyes fill her with fear, but they attract nearly everyone else who sees him. How Zia is finally driven forth an outcast, how he sees Joseph and Mary and later the Christ-child, and what happens then is told by Mrs. Burnett as she alone could tell it.

The White People (1920)
A challenge to the darkness and the mystery of death... Its background is exquisitely beautiful. Its theme is mystical. Its narrative is wholesome, charming, without a trace of morbidity or unwelcome strangeness.

In the Closed Room (1904)
A mystic sort of tale of the tenements of New York, wherein a strange human flower blossoms and fades all too soon; the tale of a young girl who could make a living things out of pictures.

In Connection with the De Willoughby Claim (1899)
"It is typically an American novel, which, in its subtle, tragic performance, lays a tremendous hold upon the reader's sympathies.... The striking originality of the plot, the intensely dramatic climaxes, and the low, sweet thrills of happiness which are in such direct contrast, give the book a weirdness and a fascination that are hard to shake off"--Boston Herald
