This is a superb tale and deserves to be republished together with the sequel, Martin Conisby's Vengeance. The way in which Farnol transforms the initial wish for revenge into a feeling of love and respect is beautifully handled. The conflicting love interests are also well told. A pity that adolescents are not reared on this sort of thing anymore. (Pity too that you have named the heroin wrongly - she is Lady JOAN Brandon.
