Amy Le Feuvre Book Descriptions


His Birthday: A Christmas Sketch by Amy Le Feuvre.


Jill's Red Bag by Amy Le Feuvre.


Jack, Jill, and Bumps are a motherless little trio, with all the lovable contradictory traits of childhood, imbibing and giving out unaffected child thoughts of God and religion, and producing good results among the grown-up people of the household, as well as of the three children.—The Sunday School Journal Vol 36 (1904).

A capital story of three English children, Jack and Jill and "Bumps," who, in what they call a Bible game, build an altar in the woods, and vow a tenth of their possessions to the Lord. Their play afterwards becomes a serious religious duty, from the performance of which much unexpected good results. All three are normal and active children, in spite of this precocious devotional attitude; and their mischievous pranks, which sometimes involve the entire neighborhood, and the amusing conversations which they hold with each other and their elders, are delightfully recounted.—The Outlook, Vol 75 (1903).

Three children, hearing of Jacob's resolve at Bethel to give God a tenth of all he recieved, resolved to follow his example. The story of their whole-souled enthusiasm, its influence on others, and its result in the building of a mission church in a needly neighborhood are most graphically and facinatingly told in "Jill's Red Bag"—the flannnel receptacle into which each contribution found its way.—A. M. V. in Record of Christian Work (1904).

Three very rambunctious orphan children were presented to a new governess, Miss Falkner, who brought "thoughts of God" to the children. Jill's red bag was used to collect money to build a church, but people laughed, and dismissed her idea as only a child's fanciful dream. The theme of the book is about the virtue of giving to the work of God. An important verse is Genesis 28:22—"And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee."—Curiosmith (2014).

Laddie's Choice by Amy Le Feuvre.

The small hero has to choose between living with a rich uncle, or with his father who is poor.—RTS (1921).


Legend Led by Amy Le Feuvre.

A charming story.—Record.

A thoroughly jolly little book. All the legend-led children are dear, quaint little persons, who act after a very delightful fashion.—Gentlewoman.

A pretty tale of how some deliciously human children were influenced, by the story of the Holy Grail, to seek after the Christ.—Christian World.

The children enjoyed exploring the large manner house, where their imaginations could soar. When they secretly plotted against their older half-brother the mischief began. A story about King Arthur and the knights, set Gypsy, the little girl, to be interested in searching for the "Holy Grail." In Gypsy's mind, the search for the "Holy Thing" soon became a search after Jesus, as described in Luke 1:35. An important verse is Proverbs 8:17: "I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me."—Curiosmith (2013).



A Little Listener by Amy Le Feuvre.

A splendid story of child-life. Trixie is a delightful little prattler, very imaginative, and quite entertaining about things in general.—RTS (1921).


A Little Maid by Amy Le Feuvre.


A Little Maid is a conventionally moral tale of a London girl who views life from an uncompromising standpoint which allows no meeting-ground between sheep and goats. Peggy is early cast on the world; but has a most unusual desire to enter "service" and finally wins everyone's respect and regard.—The Academy and Literature, Vol 67 (1904).


Little Miss Moth: The Story of Three Maidens, Charity, Hope and Faith by Amy Le Feuvre.


The Making of a Woman by Amy Le Feuvre.

Miss Le Feuvre has written many stories, which have had a good reception from the reading public. Some of these we have read, and we frankly say that this story is one of the best she has written. She writes with greater ease, with a firmer grasp of character and circumstance, and a loftier motive than before.—Aberdeen Free Press (1903).


Martin and Margot by Amy Le Feuvre.

Martin and Margot, two French children, traveled to England to stay with their aunt. Margot was selfish and vain for attention and demanded that affection be shown to her. Uncle Duncan's heroism became a model to teach Christ's sacrifice on the cross. French words and phrases are mixed into the story, with the English translation footnoted. An important verse is John 15:13—Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.—Curiosmith (2013).



Me and Nobbles by Amy Le Feuvre.


Miss Le Feuvre's new story reminds us of  "Probable Sons," and we should not wonder if it were quite as popular. The illustrations are particularly good.—The Record (1908).

It is a delightful story, full of goodlessons, but never goody goody—Bobby is too human for that!—The Yorkshire Observer (1908).

"Me and Nobbles" is the best thingits author has done since "Probable Sons," and it is safe to prophesy that it will be as popular as that delightful book.—The Christian World (1908).

A wholesome, natural story of a child who yearns to meet the father whom he does not remember.—RTS (1921).


The Mender; A Story of Modern Domestic Life by Amy Le Feuvre.

In "The Mender" Miss Amy Le Feuvre is good as ever she was. What she calls a "Mender" and what she means by "mending" we shall not say. But we shall go the length of revealing that the heroine's love for mending made her run away from the bridegroom and spoil their wedding—and after that is there a lady whose curiosity is not aroused to know all about it?—The Glasgow Herald (1906).

A pleasing story, with which a good deal of religious and 'improving' matter has-been judiciously blended—a difficult amalgam to achieve. The mender is one of a trio of sisters living in a country village with a tyrannical old father, a retired naval officer. She is the good genius of all with whom she comes into contact, and well deserves the happy ending of her love-story. The book may be recommended for the reading of young people.—The Publisher's Circular (1906)

Miss Le Feuvre has given us in this story tome interesting pictures of life and character. Very varied are the characteristics of the several individuals depicted, from the eccentric Lady Veale and the quick-tempered old Captain Campion, to the Mender, who, by means of her good influence, combines various styles of "mending" into a harmonious whole. The drink question is skillfully handled and intertwined with some love stories.—The Churchman (1908).

'The story is a good one, bright and interesting throughout.—The Chrisitan (1908).

"The Mender" will take rank as one of the best, as it certainly deserves to be one of the most popular of her many stories.—The Chrisitan World (1908).


Miss Lavender's Boy and Other Sketches by Amy Le Feuvre.


It cannot be too highly praised. It is a book that will charm both schoolgirls and grown-ups.—The British Weekly (1906).

Miss Le Feuvre is as pleasant as ever. There is abundant evidence of this in this new volume.—The Scotsman (1906).

A series of excellent stories all showing some pleasant trait of human nature and inculcating good moral lessons.—RTS (1921).
