Among the most popular and best selling Roman Catholic authors Mrs. Borden stands out. Her story of Mary, the Virgin, her life, her sorrows and her joys. The Child and then the Passion, all told as though the author had been an eye-witness with more than earthly sight is a devotional and inspiring work. As a Christmas item it will be unsurpassed among Catholics but it will be a welcome gift at any season. The old story is told in such refreshingly simple style as to seem quite new. Don't forget to suggest this book and display it conspicuously in the shop and windows. Don't however, force it on the hearty ones for it is a bit ""syrupy"" in spots.
