Until the sixth year of Edwin's life he never heard that he had ever had a father, a mother, or a home other than the place in which he was then living. He knew only that he existed, and that from day to day there were many things happening about him, some of which he enjoyed, but a great many of which were distasteful to him. But all that took place he quietly endured, thinking that it was the best that there was in life for him.-from "Life in the Almshouse"This 1919 work is the true story of Edwin, a saintly orphan who starts life the child of a "wayward mother" and later perseveres through privation, temptations of evil and superstition, and the doubt of his fellows to come to know, love, and serve God. A classic of religious inspiration that's long been out of print, it will comfort and encourage those who discover it anew today.ISABEL C. BYRUM also wrote How John Became a Man (1909) and The Pilot's Voice (1916).
