"Amy Le Feuvre has found in this fine tale a suitable and original subject for her facile pen, and it is a story that is sure to interest, to guide, and to help girls and young women. The four gates, North, South, East, and West, telling of the different quarters from which the varying winds of fortune blow, represent the different out-look on life of four young women who have the courage to look into their own lives. All have lofty ideals, and decide to endeavour to achieve their aims by going through four gates, according, of course, to their natural desires. Eventually, all find the secret of true blessedness, and the story, which never wearies the reader, supports that well-known dictum of St. Paul that "all things work together for good to them that love God." Commendably long, it is just the right kind of story to brighten a wet day, to enliven a dull hour, and to encourage us to nobler things."
