FLOWER OF THE FAMILY (THE): A BOOK FOR GIRLS

The Flower of the Family: A Book for Girls by Elizabeth Prentiss.

The year 1854 was marked by the birth of her fourth child, and by the publication of The Flower of the Family. This work was received with great favor both at home and abroad. It was soon translated into French under the title, La Fleur de la Famille.The Flower of the Family was translated into German,—as were also Stepping Heavenward, The Percys, Fred and Maria and Me,—by Miss Marie Morgenstern, of Gottingen. Some omissions in the version of Stepping Heavenward mar a little the vivacity of the book; but otherwise her work seems to have been very carefully and well done, and to have met with the warm approval of the German public.—The Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss (1882).
