ll, she's not crazy about it, is she?"

"Then do send her to bed."

"No, you can't break your promise to a child, Minna."

"Prig," said mother sweetly, as if a prig were a pleasant thing to be. "All right, let her go, then. Oh, Harry, look at that horse. They've sent us the knock-kneed old white corpse again."

Mother hurried him into the carriage, and it clattered out of the yard. They did not look back. They were always in a hurry, and rather cross when they went to the Everards.

****.

Very sweet love story that is lyrically written. A young, sheltered girl falls in love with an intelligent, determined but poor Irish boy.

Love conquers all, and in the end, the boy is able to rise above his early life and even save the town from the corrupt and evil man who holds it in his pocket. Predictable but worth a look.
