Edward Payson Roe (1838 - 1888) was a Presbyterian minister living in New York after the Civil War. In 1874 he moved to Cornwall-on-the-Hudson where he wrote fiction and studied horticulture. After the Civil War he lectured on the war and wrote periodicals. His novels had a strong moral purpose and their being written by a clergyman helped to break down the Puritanical prejudice against fiction. His best-known works were "Barriers Burned Away" and "The Earth." An excerpt from A Knight of the Nineteenth Century reads, "Egbert Haldane had an enemy who loved him very dearly and he sincerely returned her affection as he was in duty bound since she was his mother. If inspired by hate and malice Mrs. Haldane had brooded over but one question at the cradle of her child. How can I most surely destroy this boy? She could scarcely have set about the task more skilfully and successfully."
