HIGHWAY OF SORROW (THE)

The Highway of Sorrow: at the Close of the Nineteenth Century by Hesba Stretton and S. Stepniak.

Also called: The Highway of Sorrow: A Story of Modern Russia.

The same publishers announce, also, a new book by Miss Hesba Stretton called "The Highway of Sorrow." It is a novel dealing with the persecutions of the Stundists, and has been written in collaboration with a well-known Russian writer. This writer's name has been suppressed by Miss Stretton for obvious reasons, but it is an open secret that he is Stepniak. It need scarcely be added that the title is suggestive of the Russian via dolorosa across Siberia.—Dodd, Mead & Co. (1894)

A vivid story of village life in Russia, written with all the force and skill which Miss Stretton has at her command. In order to present a correct view of the life and characteristics of the Russian peasantry, the author called to her aid an eminent Russian writer and patriot, whose great heart was wrung by the sufferings of his fellow-countrymen.—Religious Tract Society (1908).

The book arrests the attention of the reader all through, and there is not an uninteresting page in it.—The Educational News (1908).

This is a powerful picture of the miseries and moral darkness of Russia, and is well worth reading.—The British Weekly (1908).
