An enjoyable, funny novel dealing with the life of twin girls, born to a silly London beauty who eloped with a Scotsman. He is disinherited, and poverty in Scotland is too much for the beauty to endure, so she leaves with one twin, Adelaide Julia, and leaves the other, Mary, to be raised in Scotland by her aunt and three great-aunts: Miss Jacky, Miss Grizzy, and Miss Nicky.Of course, when Mary is ready for marriage, she reunites with her sister and complications occur, contrasting a fashionable London education with a good, moral Scottish education.
