The hero is a farmer--a man with honest, sincere views of life. Bereft of his wife, his home is cared for by a succession of domestics of varying degrees of inefficiency until, from a most unpromising source, comes a young woman who not only becomes his wife but commands his respect and eventually wins his love.

Then, before he could realize the truth, he was left alone at her wintry grave;

This exemplifies what a good romance story is all about. It had a wholesome feel and no smut as is common in the romance novels of today. I am excited to read the story to my mother.
