Product description

Small hardback, illustrated blue boards. A short illustrated novel for older children by Sarah Doudney, published by the Sunday School Union. Undated, 'Thirteenth Thousand', undated but believed late 19th century, since 'Loser and Gainer' was first published in 1873.

Sarah Doudney (1841-1926) was best known as a children's fiction writer and writer of hymns. She contributed poetry and fiction to periodicals, including Dickens's 'All the Year Round' and 'The Girls' Own Paper', and published around 35 novels, most aimed at girls, although some were intended for adults. Many of them end tragically, although with a Christian attitude of looking forward to life after death.
