PERCYS (THE)

The Percys by Elizabeth Prentiss.

Also titled: The Story of the Percys, Ever Heavenward; or, A Mothers Influence.

In the course of this spring [1870] The Percys was published. The story first came out as a serial in the New York Observer. It was translated into French under the title La Famille Percy. In 1876, a German version appeared under the title Die Familie Percy. It was also republished in London. But greatly to Mrs. Prentiss' annoyance, with the title changed to Ever Heavenward—as if to make it appear to be a sequel to Stepping Heavenward.—The Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss (1882).
