The heroine of this book is an extremely silly woman, and it's hard to believe that anyone could be such a fool. But she does redeem herself with cleverness at the end. I rather liked the ending, which is the only thing that saved it from a one-star rating for me. I'm a Norah Lofts fan, but this isn't one of her best.

How powerful is self doubt? So powerful that when horrid things slap you in the face it is too difficult to comprehend. Actually we do comprehend on some level, but we refuse to trust our own instinct, our reality is not our dream. This will hit home to anyone who waivers between what things should be, and how things can actually be.

I read this book a long time ago.
A charming, old-fashioned British novel with a delightful twist ending. A good book to curl up to with a cup of tea on a cold winter day.
I prefer Norah Lofts in historical mode.
Best book ever!!!!
