Guide for Catholic Young Women - Especially for Those Who Earn Their Own Living
by Rev George Deshon.
First published in 1868, this book contains 83 chapters that would seem to deal with every important subject for the young lady. There are the usual chapters one would expect on Prayer but some unusual chapters like, "How to Behave in Sickness", "The Devil’s Pretexts for Lying" and others. Often a particular virtue is covered on one chapter and then the advantages of that same virtue are shown in the following chapter. The author brings in examples of saints to show how they would deal with spiritual problems.
