AbstractHistoryArchive Description

English society romance set in England and France. A rich idle lord who loves beauty proposes to a beautiful but cold-hearted and unresponsive woman. As he comes to know her better he falls in love with her much less pretty but 'true-hearted, tender, sympathetic' poor cousin, Amy. A fever at St Lazare causes his fiancée and all her family but Amy to desert him - she nurses him through his illness and he marries her. Well-written, light. (PB)
