There were two of them--as unlike as two men could be. Sir Eustace, big,domineering, haughty, used to sweeping all before him with the power ofhis personality.The other was Stumpy, small, insignificant, quiet, with a little limp.They clashed over the greatest question that may come to men--the loveof a girl.She took Sir Eustace just because she could not help herself--and wasswept ahead on the tide of his passion.And then, when she needed help most--on the day before thewedding--Stumpy saved her--and the quiet flame of his eyes was more thanthe brute power of his brother.How did it all come out?

This was a very satisfying book. There was nothing I would change. All the characters were true-to-live. It really can be described as vivid and charming. I love it. 5 stars!
