Overview

"There Miss Phelps' book is justly regarded as one of the best volumes of short stories ever published in this country. The Independent says: ". . . If Elizabeth Stuart Phelps is not the best living writer of short stories, it would be difficult to find the name to be properly set above hers. Beyond the ordinary attractive elements of construction or literary workmanship, she puts thought, and especially heart, into whatever she writes. A volume of her stories, like ' Sealed Orders,' is an admirable book for family reading, than which no better selection can easily be made." The Golden Rule remarks: "We do not know of any kindred collection that combines so much of variety, strength, and beauty." The Portland Transcript observes: "People may criticise Mrs. Phelps' books, but everybody reads them, and finds in them a charm which they are not slow to acknowledge."
