Overview

A Knight of the XIXth Century (1877)


"In the delineation of character, which enters into the development of the plot, Mr. Roe shows his greatest strength; his characters are portrayed in lively colors and with excellent effect. This preserves the narrative from the monotony and commonplace which can scarcely be avoided in ethical fictions, and is the secret of its success." -- New York Tribune.

"It is a book which those who begin will be pretty sure to finish, deriving from it a new impulse to the truest knighthood." -- Harper's Magazine.

"It is eminently thoughtful, admirably constructed, and thoroughly interesting from cover to cover." -- Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post.

"The whole tone of the work is manly and healthful. It is thoroughly noble in all its teachings and tendencies." -- Utica Herald.

"The most charming book yet produced by Mr. Roe, and one of the very best of its class ever written." -- Christian Union.

"Enhances the author's already well-established reputation. Mr. Roe is sensational, but to a degree that is not unhealthy, and his books will be less ephemeral than the general run of religious novels." -- Springfield Republican.

"This book contains the elements of perfect work, clearness and brilliancy of style, conciseness and beauty of expression, a good plot, an entertaining story, and a most excellent moral." -- Christian Intelligencer.

"The characters are drawn from real life." -- Christian Union.

"Mr. Roe's style is never commonplace." -- Boston Courier.

"He has greatly improved the art of telling a story." -- New York Evening Post.

"His stories are uniformly of intense interest." -- Boston Home Journal.
