of _Philippa_, _Olivia_, _Blanche_, _Carrots_, _Imogen_, &c. With eight
Illustrations by W. Rainey. =5/=

  Mrs Molesworth with her usual charm of manner, and easy natural
  grace, traces the development of Meg Langholme from early girlhood
  to young womanhood, with her friends and companions in the home of
  Bray Weald, where she is like an adopted daughter, until mysterious
  warnings bode the disaster of her life; for certain reasons she is
  kidnapped and concealed until cleverly rescued, and happily married
  to a lifelong friend then home from India.

  surrounded by bogs and woodlands, during the reign of James II. of

  being Kitty Malone from Castle Malone in Ireland, who earns
  the nickname of Wild Kitty because of her love of mischief and

  to weave a fascinating narrative, and one which she herself believes
  will rank amongst her best efforts.
