The story of an English aristocrat who inherits a princedom in Moravia and finds an unexpected romance as part of the bargain!
"What separates it from most books of its class is its distinction of manner, its unusual grace of diction, its delicacy of touch, and the fervent charm of its love passages. It is a very attractive piece of romantic fiction relying for its effect upon character rather than incident, and upon vivid dramatic presentation."--The Dial. "A stirring, brilliant and dashing story."--The Outlook.
