Countess Kate by Charlotte Mary Yonge

Countess KateCountess Kate by Charlotte Mary Yonge
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While clearly this is an instruction book for proper young ladies ways to God and good behavior, it is also a pretty good story. I actually enjoyed the plot and I enjoyed Kate as a character. The book did not feel particularly preach-y until the end. I would definitely have some things to say about the author’s treatment and interpretations of childhood and women, but I think that as it is a product of its time, that discussions should prove to be rather engaging.

Not at all a bad read if you come across a copy, though it is out of print/POD.
