KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to A London Child of the Seventies, etc. Victorian memoirs, written with quiet charm. One cannot feel the same sense of discovery in succeeding volumes that the first volume gave, but this should appeal to the same market. This takes her through the period of her engagement, while she and her fiancÉ both worked, he at his reading for the bar, she at her teaching. It was uphill work, to put across fairly progressive ideas of education in those days. On the side she studied the whole problem of marriage in preparation for her own. The beginning of their married life comes into the picture, the early struggles, the first years of their children's lives, with practical application of her theories of child training. You know your audience.
