Description:
At the top of the first page of the first chapter, one can make out the phrase “Who of us shall be most like Emily?” in very faint cursive writing. Emily, a young British girl sent to a Roman Catholic school in France, is the protagonist of the story. In this polemical work, McCrindell warns Protestant parents of the dangers of sending their children to Catholic schools on the continent.
