Ever since the success achieved by Bindle , Herbert Jenkins has been urged to write giving Mrs. Bindle's point of view. This book is the result. Among other things, it narrates how Mrs. Bindle caught a chill, how a nephew was born to her and what effect it had upon her outlook. It tells how she encountered a bull, and what happened to the man who endeavoured to take forcible possession of her home. She is shown as breaking a strike by precipitating a lock out, burning incense to her brother in law, Mr. Hearty, and refusing the armistice that was offered. One chapter tells of her relations with her neighbours. Another deals with a. musical evening she planned, and yet a third of how she caught a chill and was in great fear of heaven.
