The Benefactress

by Elizabeth Beauchamp

Anna Estcourt, aged twenty-five, coming into a small property in North Germany, philanthropically offers a home to twelve distressed ladies. This somewhat farcical scheme is worked out with considerable seriousness, and there are scenes that border on tragedy; but as a whole the book is quietly comic, full of superficial but caustic sketches of character and manners. The writer is a close observer of german country-folk, and the novel, though weak in structure, is unified by the personal charm and some of the feeling for nature already noted.
