The Young Cottager
- Legh Richmond
Legh Richmond's The Young Cottager, first written in the mid-1800s, is the touching and true story of young Jane of Brading, a young lady who was a member of the church he served. Jane's strength of faith even during poor health and multiplied sufferings captured her pastor's notice, as a marvelous and striking example. Jane, also the first convert of his ministry there, is the subject of this beautifully told story, with illustrations from nature filling the pages as well.
After that first story, this volume also includes four other short stories, each about the faith of individuals living in very different times than ours:
* Fanny Graham
* Little Ruth
* An abridged version of the well-known story of Mary Jones and her Bible
* The short story What Must I Do?
Each is a story of believers living with praise to God in their hearts when they could have complained of their difficult circumstances.
