Miss Lulu Bett is a novel written by Zona Gale and originally published in 1920. It was later adapted by the author herself as a play.
Set in life in the Midwestern United States, the novel introduces us to Miss Lulu Bett. She is a 33-year-old woman who is still single and lives with her sister and her sister's family, and works there as a housekeeper.
Lulu is shy and introverted, and is often silenced by her brother-in-law. She is unhappy, but does not complain about it.
Events change when Lulu meets Ninian, her brother-in-law's brother, and a romance develops between them. Little by little Lulu will gain more self-confidence and the courage to free herself as a woman and confront all those who manipulate or belittle her.
