LP...I have a secret love for Victorian "religious" literature...I own all of the Elsie Dinsmore and Mildred Keith books by Martha Finley, and "Wide, Wide World" and "Daisy Plains" (?)by Susan Warner. If I am ever sad, they pick up my mood because I laugh myself silly at the angst. Do you have any recommendations for other writers like that? I've tried George Eliot, but she doesn't grab my interest.

BTW...if you didn't teach just far enough from me, I'd be darned tempted to audit your classes, just for the fun of it.

So this is actually a critique of evangelical revivalism, in the guise of an anti-Catholic novel?
