The secret revealed to Allen during this argument is such that he breaks off his engagement to Dora refusing to reveal the cause. Since those around her seem unwilling to share what they know it is up to Dora to discover the truth and unmask the murderer of her guardian. - Summary by Celine Major (6 hr 6 min)

Reviews

TIMES ARE DIFFERENT


(5 stars)

This is a medium rated Hume work, but it was still entertaining and extremely well read. I noted that "times are different" because the great problem which supposedly would prevent the marriage would be no problem today, and no one would even consider not telling it.

One of my favorite narrators


(3 stars)

Although one of my favorite authors, this cannot be counted as one of my favorite stories. The plot was not believable or interesting. And the "I can't tell you" was nerve-wracking.

Read other Hume’s

One of those books that make you say, “l could do better.”

good read
