This is a wonderful book by Elizabeth Prentiss! Here is what the back cover says:
"Dear Mrs. Grey,
Some years ago...I was struck with the difference between your family and those of others....I am the mother of six children, the eldest boy of fourteen, and the youngest a baby. In deep humility, in bitter disappointment, my husband and myself have come to this conclusion: our boys and girls are exceptionally troublesome, or are we very bad managers. Our homelife is beset with disorder and discomfort, which is becoming intolerable....can you, and will you, undertake the task of spending a day ortwo, more or less, as you think best, in our family?"
Could this future generation be saved for Heaven? The Home at Greylock is a book for child rearing. Mrs. Grey's wisdom will be yours, and your family a bit of Heaven on earth.
This is a fiction novel, originally written in 1876. But if you can't get your hand on the book, have no fear! You can read it online HERE! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :)
