Celia is a prisoner in Brown's Buildings, a prisoner on a pound a week, a prisoner who had once known the sweets of ample life in the country. Then there is a struggling young author and a crime, and at the back of all a peerage just like the things on the cards in fortune-telling plus the really inimitable verve and nimbleness of Mr. Garvice's most popular manner.

As Celia opened the door, the one opposite hers opened at the same moment, and a lady came out. Judging by her figure, for her face was thickly veiled, she was young; she was plainly but richly dressed, and wore a coat and muff of sable. Her appearance was so strangely different from that of the residents and visitors of the Buildings that Celia could not help staring at her with surprise.

You’ll have to have an incontestable view of fate to find the story believable. This is the third of Garvice’s book I have read and they follow the same themes as most other good romances of the period, ending in blissful love, wealth, and title with the bad guys punished. If you’re like me and enjoy these love stories from 100 years ago, you’ll love this one too.
