Great writing. Enjoyable to enter and journey along with plot. Brilliant understanding of complex mental illness and evil. Love all her stories!

The narrator, who I have heard before, is very good if a bit fast..this is not a bad thing for a book written just at the turn of the last century as it keeps the book from becoming dull.
As usual in Burnett’s Adult books, this is not a great huge book, it is instead an intimate one. A bad marriage between a cruel man and a woman who is not strong is well shown, and her sister is a wonderful “new age” woman who comes from America and implements changes to save her sister and the entailed estate to which her son is heir. Just desserts are served in satisfactory portions and in the end there is happiness although Burnett never lets you forget what damage old-fashioned anti-woman laws can do. A good little reminder of things currently happening today.
