After seeing this book in many places, I finally got my hands on it!
I have heard mixed reviews on it–mostly just folks complaining about the “old fashioned” language or that it’s written for the wrong century. I absolutely loved the language, as well as the quaint pictures. And I definitely think the ideas and thoughts provided are more than suitable for today’s girls. After all, it was written specifically for today’s young ladies.
If you’re raising daughters, I highly recommend this book. It’s written as a study for Mothers and Daughters to do together. My girls aren’t old enough quite yet to discuss some of the things mentioned, but soon Morgan will be.
Reading the book now, while my girls are still young has a great benefit in that I’ll be able to keep some of these topics in the back of my head until the time comes for discussion.
And if you don’t have daughters, you just may glean something for yourself. Even though I have daughters and read this for them, it certainly challenged me personally.
