Gentle Gertrude is a fictional “tale for youth,” written by Mary Ann Kelty (1789-1873) with the aim of engaging the attention and affections of young people, and awakening them to a greater awareness of the workings of both good and evil in the human heart. Gertrude is a shy orphan girl who comes to reside in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Allen and their three rambunctious children, and under the careful tutelage of their pious governess, Ms. Robson, the entire family grows in their understanding and experience of that grace which “teaches us to to deny ungodliness and worldly lust, and live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.”
