In what started out as a directory for the author's sister, Harvey Newcomb (1803-1865) writes so as to aid the reader in cultivating intellectual, social, moral, and religious maturity. Harvey points ladies toward developing a virtuous character, and provides practical directions for this pursuit.

"A good book from the past for the needs of the present. It is a 'Teacher's Manual' by which parents may scripturally and practically guide their daughters along the path of goodness and godliness. Its principles and practices are lights along the pathway of life for young ladies who desire to become godly women for the glory of God. It should be read, studied, prayed over, and put into practice by parents, young ladies, and - yes - even young men! It should be in every home, and in the library of every young lady. It is a 'companion' book for a lifetime." - Pastor Don Scott
