A murdered man.
Two nieces. One inherits. One gets nothing.
A very juicy secret - especially for the time.
A 2nd murder. Unrequited love - the confession of the murderer is great.
Definitely get and well worth your time. A bit longer than many of the stories of the era.
I was wrong. The author is so florid in description (and in such a quaint style I only realized it was set in the U.S. deep into reading) I was exhausted from 200-word paragraphs by midway. God, what an ordeal. Jesus wept.
The story earns it three stars. The telling cost it two more. No thought is expressed in ten words when 50 or 60 are available.
You'll like the period. You'll like the quaint burdens put upon a gentleman. You will hate yourself by page 100, realizing much remains. Good luck.
