Around Old Chester- by Margaret Deland

Around Old Chester
by Margaret Deland
New York: Harper and Brothers
c. 1898, 1915 edition

American author Margaret Deland (1857-1945) is perhaps best known for her novel John Ward, Preacher (1888). She also wrote a series of stories set in the fictional town of Old Chester, Pennsylvania. These are delightful stories which remind me of Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford.
