Most widely held works by Charlotte M Yonge
The heir of Redclyffe by Charlotte M Yonge( )

222 editions published between 1853 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1853, The Heir of Redclyffe was among the most successful novels of the century, equalling even the work of Dickens and Thackeray in popularity. The story of a clash of personality between well-born cousins, Guy Morville and Philip Edmonstone, the plot focuses on Guy's spiritual struggle to overcome the darker side of his nature. Philip's sinister insinuations about Guy's character almost thwart Guy's marriage to the gentle Amy, yet despite their bitter feuding the novel reaches an unexpected and dramatic conclusion that vindicates romantic virtue, self-sacrifice, and piety, epitomizing the period's nostalgia for an idealized chivalric past." "Adopted by William Morris and Burne-Jones as 'a pattern for actual life', Guy was a popular role model of noble virtue, while Amy is the ideal Victorian wife - redeemer and inspirer, support and guide. The Heir of Redclyffe is a virtual paradigm of the trends of thought which characterized the middle decades of the nineteenth century. It is deeply marked by the influence of the Oxford Movement, an aspect explored by Barbara Dennis in her Introduction to this unique critical edition."--BOOK JACKET
Abbeychurch; or, Self control and self conceit by Charlotte M Yonge( )

18 editions published between 1844 and 2014 in English and held by 1,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written when the author was in her early twenties, and now regarded as Yonge's first serious work of fiction, Abbeychurch grapples with both serious theological issues pertaining to the schism between Broad, High and Low factions in the Church of England, as well as with the struggles of ego and impulse that are common in adolescence and early adulthood. A gripping and sophisticated example of women's nineteenth-century fiction

The dove in the eagle's nest by Charlotte M Yonge( Book )

152 editions published between 1866 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1901), was an English novelist, known for her huge output. She was devoted to the Church of England, and much influenced by John Keble, a near neighbour and one of the leaders of the Oxford Movement. Her novels reflected the values and concerns of Anglo-Catholicism. She began writing in 1848, and published during her long life about 100 works, chiefly novels. Her first commercial success, The Heir of Redclyffe (1854), provided the funding to enable the schooner Southern Cross to be put into service on behalf of George Selwyn. Similar charitable works were done with the profits from later novels. She was also editor, for nearly forty years, of a magazine for young ladies, the Monthly Packet. Among the best known of her works are Heartsease; or, The Brother's Wife (1854), The Daisy Chain; or, Aspirations (1856), A History of Christian Names (1863, revised 1884), A Book of Golden Deeds (1864), The Dove in the Eagle's Nest (1866), Life of John Coleridge Patteson: Missionary Bishop of the Melanesian Islands (1873) and Hannah More (1888)

88 editions published between 1865 and 2017 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Focuses on a group of women in a small seaside community [in England]. It is the early 1860s, and British women outnumber men to such an extent that not all women can expect to marry. Rachel Curtis, the clever woman of the title, is an opinionated young woman whose yearning for a "mission" in life leads to tragicomic results."--Back cover
