Boston-born Adeline Dutton Train (1824-1906), who married wealthy merchant Seth Whitney in 1843 and wrote under that name, was a poet and novelist whose main audience was young women. Her first book of poetry, "Mother Goose for Grown Folks", appeared in 1859. Her first youth-oriented novel, Boys at Chequasset, was published in 1862. Train Whitney championed traditional values, believing that a woman's proper place was at home. She opposed women's suffrage, but - consistent with her values - took no active part in politics.
