Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Duke of Billlingsgate is the proudest man in England. He exists in a rarefied social sphere, and no one is good enough for his daughter, the beautiful, stately, reserved Lady Jane.

While the Duke rejects one suitor after another, Lady Jane attains the age of twenty-eight. Will she become passée and miss her chance to marry? No! She falls in love - but outside the strict geography of parental guidance, and with a man the Duke will never accept. Mr. Winton is rich, attractive, intelligent and utterly devoted - but a nobody.

Lady Jane has a sensible mother. The Duchess tries to help, but what can she do?

This is hardly an original story line for nineteenth-century readers, yet Mrs. Oliphant makes it all her own with a completely engaging heroine.

It's not easy to put this book down, as the author describes Lady Jane's delicate sensitivities and tremulous emotions at every stage of her romantic adventure.

Margaret Oliphant has been called a feminist Trollope. This would probably be considered one of her lesser works (she wrote almost 100 novels), but I was enchanted by the wit and elegance of the storytelling.
