AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Uneven, oddly paced romance of an opera singer and her lover separated by a quarrel but reunited years later through her adoption of his child. Sub-plot involving her Irish maid and an Irish member of the orchestra who has to save £100 to marry her. Poorly realised with some humour. (PB)
