Excerpt

nner yet, I see! It will be delightful to have you at home for good, for Vere is away so much that I have felt quite bereft. Sit up, darling--don't stoop! It will be so interesting to have another girl to bring out! There are plenty of young people about here now, so you need not be dull, and I hope we shall be great companions. You were a sad little hoyden in the old days, but now that you have passed eighteen you will be glad to settle down, won't you, dear, and behave like the woman you are. Have you no little brooch, darling, to keep that collar straight at the neck? It is all adrift, and looks so untidy. Those little things are of such importance. I had such a charming letter from Miss Martin, full of nice speeches about you. She says you sing so sweetly. You must have some good lessons, for nothing is more taking than a young voice properly trained, and I hope you have no foolish nervousness about singing in public. You must get over it, if you have, for I rely on you to help me when we have visitors."<

***..

This early effort of de Horne Vaizey's shows promise but isn't one of her better works. Neither Una nor her sister quite ring true, and as for sad, sacrificing Rachel.... Perhaps young women of the period were really as empty headed as this book makes these girls seem, but given they were considered to be of marriageable age, I hope not.

*****

A really sweet romance. I highly recommend it.

This book reads like a diary, the diary of Una Sackville. It starts when Una's 19 and on the verge of returning home from boarding school and it choronicles Una's life as she matures.
