Novels in reading at all the Libraries.
HALF A DOZEN DAUGHTERS.
Two Volumes. Crown 8vo. “ The book possesses that air of probability which is an important element in a good novel, and calls out sympathies which a more pretentious, more romantic, and consequently more improbable tale, would fail to awaken. We can honestly recommend our readers to order . Half a Dozen Daughters' from the circulating library, and can also say of it that which can but rarely be said of the novels of the day—that it is a work which the most careful of mothers may confidently place in the hands of her own daughters.”— Athenæum.
“The author has given us one of the brightest and pleasantest pictures of domestic life that we have seen for some time.-Graphic.
HER TITLE OF HONOUR.
“ For Richer for Poorer,” etc.
One Vol. Crown Svo. “ It is unnecessary to recommend tales of Holne LEE's, for they are well known, and all more or less liked. But this book far exceeds even our favourites, “Sylvan Holt's Daughter,' “Kathie Brande,' and • Thorney Hall,' because with the interest of a pathetic story is united the value of a definite and high purpose ; and because, also, it is a careful and beautiful piece of writing, and is full of studies of refined and charming character.”—Spectator.
“ The graceful writer and accomplished lady who takes the name of HOLME LEE as her nom de plume, has never written a more fascinating story than the one under the above heading.”—Public Opinion.
“A tenderly pathetic story, told in good plain English ; a story of service and heroic sacrifice spent in the best and holiest cause. It is enriched with beautiful description, and details of life and sentiment.”—London Quarterly.
“The tale is such a charming one, and the characters so well drawn." -Churchman's Shilling Monthly.
“A most exquisitely written story.”—Literary Churchman.
“The characters are all strongly marked, well developed, and sustained throughout.” – Examiner.
