A delightful novel in the author's most charming vein. The scene is laid in an English country house, where an amiable English nobleman is the centre of matrimonial interest on the part of both the English and Americans present. Graceful, sprightly, almost delicious in its dialogue and action. It is a book about which one is tempted to write ecstatically.

The story of Emily Fox-Seton is a heart-warming manual detailing how gratitude and a willingness to be a loving person can take a woman to untold heights, even through adversity.

It was a story I enjoyed curling up to for an evening's entertainment. The lively characters have a depth that make them pop to life within the movie-screen of my mind. I believe that Lady Emily will be in my thoughts for a long time.
