Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. E.P. Roe's From Jest for Earnest is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. The time is Christmas, and the setting is at a lovely house in the country, owned by Lottie Marsden's aunt, who has invited her among other relatives, (including a dandy cousin who has his cap set for Lottie), to spend the holiday there. Everyone has arrived when they here that another cousin, (poorer), is coming-a soon to be minister. Lottie, a well known belle, proposes to trick him into falling in love with her, by pretending to be pious and in need of guidance-in jest. However, when the cousin arrives, he is not at all as she expected, and it isn't too far into the story before her jest, turns into earnest! A wonderful Christian fiction read, that uplifts and leaves the reader satisfied to the brim. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
