AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tiny has gone to Paris on a holiday, and it is there that a young Englishman involves her in an affair which affects the whole of her life. Her lover inherits a dukedom, and disbelieving Tiny's statement that she is the daughter of a clergyman, and not a coquette, leaves her. In order to give her first born a name, an English baronet marries Tiny on the understanding that the marriage is not to be consummated. The rest of this dramatic tale is told with a consummate understanding of the need for a gripping plot, and the swiftly changing locale and atmosphere here provide one of the finest novels that has ever come out of Australia.'
