Publisher's Summary

Barbara, a young and impetuous heiress, rejects the stern Lord Uplandtowers to elope with a poor but handsome man, Edmund Willowes. When Barbara's parents send Edmund to Europe, they hope to change him into a more suitable match for their daughter. But after disaster strikes, Edmund returns in a way nobody could have imagined.

A wonderful little Hardy gem...

in the Gothic style, something of a departure for him, but this story is wonderfully engaging and bizarre, worthy of Hawthorne or even Poe.
