“It is just because you are sorry for me; I suppose I seem so lonely,” I whispered demurely.

“It is perfectly impossible—what you propose to do—to go and live by yourself at a London hotel—the idea drives me mad!”

“It will be delightful! no one to order me about from morning to night!”

“Listen,” he said, and he flung himself into an armchair. “You can marry me, and I will take you to Paris, or where you want, and I won’t order you about,—only I shall keep the other beasts of men from looking at you.”

But I told him at once I thought that would be very dull. “I have never had the chance of any one looking at me,” I said, “and I want to[41] feel what it is like. Mrs. Carruthers always assured me I was very pretty, you know, only she said that I was certain t. . . Read More

If you're interested in the Edwardian Era or have an interest in how the romance novel has evolved, this is worth reading.

When cleaning out her attic we found all sorts of lost and found items left behind by those strangers.

Lovely, entertaining story...

Even though this book is a very read, I enjoyed the time it took. I love curling up with an interesting read. It kept me guessing to the very, very end. It did not end as I predicted, but so much better.
