15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Robert Underwood on August 16, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Although the book chronicles the life of Edna Earl from childhood into adult life, it was titled, 'St. Elmo.' Edna Earl maintained a very high sense of morality, and strongly valued her belief system and her integrity. It was this sense of morality, expressed through her confident personality, that resulted in the eventual 'spiritual reawakening' of St. Elmo Murray. St. Elmo was truly 'born again' as a man and as a spiritual being. His turnaround from an angry, misanthropic individual into an enlightened individual was remarkable. It was Edna Earl who triggered this awakening in him. Therefore, naming the book 'St. Elmo' was a testament his receiving of grace. Agusta Jane Evans was an outstanding writer, as good as any whose books I have ever read.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on November 24, 1998
Format: Hardcover
The Story was written over 100 years ago, and is about an orphan girl and her development into a woman. The first few chapters are hard to get through, but you'll be hooked by Chapt. 4. The author frequently refers to other literary works by Dante, Schiller, the Bible, etc., which you may or may not have already read, but the story-line is captivating and unpredictable. It was hard to put it down. I thoroughly loved it, and highly recommend it to others. When you walk away from it, you'll still have a lot to think over.

St. Elmo is a wonderful, thought-provoking book which will leave you encouraged and inspired. The heroine is a wonderful model for all young women, and the intelligence of the author, with her continuous allusions to other books and situations, will also leave you inspired and desirous to seek knowledge and wisdom. All in all, this book serves a challenge for the mind, and an inspiration for the soul. I would highly recommend it.

Deep reading with good Christian standards. I loved all the references and quotes from famous authors and philosophers. It's all about a real-life hero who has real-life problems to conquer. Definately recommended!

I first bought this book at the age of 19 in 1985 when I was picking.up antiques at yard sales. I ended up reading this book. On a personal level, I felt as if I were living the modern version of the story myself, so I was naturally mesmerized.
The reader finds himself following the life of Edna, from her youth with its tragic losses, and into her womanhood wherein she finds her purpose, while agonizing over her emotions in regards to the opposite sex.. This is what I would call a genuine romance for the hopeless romantic.
Besides being a romantic novel, it was most assuredly a means for protecting the social, moral and political ideals of the women of the day.
As a Jane Austen fan, I would say that Augusta J. Evans might be Jane Asten on a moral/political crusade.
