This probably is an education for many of today's young adults. It shows how life was in "the old days."
Written by Sister Mary Francis Clare, the Nun of Kenmare (according to the book's cover), the book is a mix of religion and practical advice about the every-day life of an Irish immigrant lady. The book is aimed at young, single, Irish Catholic ladies who emigrated to America. Most of these young women were looking for jobs as servants or similar work.
Your great-grandmother probably read this book.
