(5 stars)

Morality versus instinct carries this tale of love. Mary Elizabeth Braddon's delicate paintbrush enlightens the characters and ways of people and enlivens the places and nature of West Country England and of Italy. Beautiful writing. It describes them as true in our 21st century as in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

A Sad one...

(4 stars)

A sad one,but atleast Ursula finds peace Having read some of Elizabeths other works,I at first found this a bit dreary and slow,but its quite interesting in a way

(5 stars)

This has to be the most passionate love story ever written. It was great! And thank you to the wonderful narrator!


(5 stars)

Excellent reader with a well developed timeless plot of youth ,innocence , and lives destroyed
