A companion volume to THOUGHTS FOR YOUNG MEN by J.C. Ryle. Harvey Newcomb (1803-1863) wrote 178 volumes, mostly for children and young adults. This volume, YOUNG LADY'S GUIDE, was by far his most popular book, and is subtitled To The Harmonious Development of Christian Character. In the words of the author, "The 'Young Lady's Guide' was intended for a class of females, who have attained some degree of maturity of character, and who are supposed already to have entered upon a religious life." This would be a wonderful gift for graduation from High School or College. While some of the language is dated, having been written over 150 years ago, it nevertheless speaks directly to the heart and mind of young ladies who desire to serve Jesus Christ in the 21st century.
