AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Romance set in England and Germany. An older widow persuades a younger shipowner and merchant who had once saved her from a fire to marry her - to enable her to gain her inheritance and to save him from financial ruin. The 'mother and son' marriage eventually takes on the dimension of love when she reveals herself to be a young woman and an actress. Light; slightly confusing. (PB)
