Four Gates & On the Edge of a Moor / 2 books by Amy Le Feuvre

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

On the Edge of a Moor (pub by The Religious Tract Society)

There is no publisher's date in this book, but there is a Sunday School Prize presentation plate marked 1918 on the front free end paper. There is also another previous owner's name inked on the inside of the front cover (dated 1978). The cover is in very good condition for its age - intact, but with some wear and bumping at the ends of the spine. There is some foxing on the end papers and the free page edges, but only slight foxing on the pages of the text, which are otherwise in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked.

Rhoda desired to have a mercy ministry by relocating to a benighted, heathenish community. She was impatient and independent but the Lord had plans for her spiritual growth. She selected a cottage by the moor and gradually became friends with her neighbours. She started a Bible reading group to teach the village children. She was encouraged by small successes and learned to trust God's timing while she led people to Christ.


Four Gates (pub by Pickering and Inglis)

This book is in very good condition for its age. The dust jacket is price clipped and worn around the edges, but is otherwise in very good condition and is now covered by a removable plastic cover. The boards are in very good condition, apart from slight bumping at the ends of the spine. There are the remains of a book plate (dated 1942) on the inside of the front cover. Internally, the pages are in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked.

"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." Part of the Golden Crown Series (No. 9).
