The Owners of Broadlands

Author: Mrs. H. B. Paul
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
Publish Date: 1886

            The name of the writer is sufficient guarantee that the plot of the story is well constructed and interesting and that the tone is pure and elevating. Young persons generally who have "large expectations" from old bachelor uncles may learn some very useful lessons from it; the same may be said of the spoiled only sons of weak minded mothers. Two other classes we would also advise to peruse it, they won't miss the five shillings; viz., those who unexpectedly "drop into" a magnificent fortune and young men who while "over head and ears in love," rapidly acquire professional eminence and success; a very small edition will be sufficient for these. The former, however, are so numerous that the book ought to have many readers.
