Down in the Valley

Author: Lady Hope
Publisher: S. W. Partridge and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

In this pretty little book we have sketches of the mental and spiritual experiences of  two young ladies of the author's station in life. The one, a lover of pleasure and busy idleness, having lost the means of gratifying her taste for "society," becomes wretchedly morbid and at cross purposes with all around her. Her friend and confidante, on the contrary, though "down in the valley," wears in her bosom the sweet flower of heart's ease and is enabled to lead her friend beside the still waters of the river of God. Placed in the hands of any pleasure loving maiden, this charming little story would, we doubt not, be spiritually profitable; for it has a sweetness all its own, many of its leaves having the fragrance of "The Rose of Sharon, and the Lily of the valleys."
