Katie: An Edinburgh Lassie

Author: Robina F. Hardy
Publisher: Oliphant, Anderson, and Ferrier
Publish Date: 1886

A capital little story of life and Christian work in the slums of Auld Reekie and of genteel poverty in its once aristocratic quarters. The sayings of the drunken fish hawker, Mistress Gebbie, and her droll daughter, Katie, are laughter provoking to a degree; while the death bed scene of poor Andrew in the infirmary is full of tender pathos. This book, like others by Miss Hardy, will encourage Christian workers among the outcast.
