Painted Fires, first published in 1925, narrates the trials and tribulations of Helmi Milander, a Finnish immigrant, during the years approaching the First World War. The novel serves as a vehicle for McClunga€™s social activism, especially in terms of temperance, woman suffrage, and immigration policies that favour cultural assimilation. In her afterword, Cecily Devereux situates Painted Fires in the context of McClunga€™s feminist fiction and her interest in contemporary questions of immigration and a€œnaturalization.a€ She also considers how McClunga€™s representation of Helmi Milandera€™s story draws on popular culture narratives.1910.
