Ith a fine eye for the exigencies of an irregular profile and who deserved an order of merit for choosing a dress at once so simple so artistic and so becomi. This was really rather nice The heroine Katrine is a young woman who has devoted her life to looking after her brother after he was tragically widowed only by the start of the book this is beginning to get a bit boring for her However her best friend lives in India and has a habit of reading bits of her letters to one of her friends a Captain Blair the hero Captain Blair falls in love with Katrine on the basis of these letter bits and a couple of photos and starts writing to her Around the same time the tragic brother finally gets over himself it's been 8 years and he'd only been married 6 months when she died and falls in love with a friend of Katrine's So brother and friend get married and Katrine yields to the importunings of her Indian friend and Captain Blair and heads for IndiaHere's where things get complicated Because you see Captain Blair's friend Captain Bedford has been convalescing in Egypt and joins Katrine's ship at Port Said to look after her the rest of the way to India And he and she fall in love And Katrine agonises about it because she's going out to meet Captain Blair who loves her so falling in love with someone else on the way is cheating So she's all noble and hiding her love and making sure Captain Bedford knows she's practically spoken for And in the meantime she's nice to another man who's consumptive and an alcoholic and shunned by the rest of the passengers And doesn't reform him because the author knows what she's talking about And then they have a shipwreck and Katrine and Captain Bedford can't pretend they don't love each other when they're about to die Only of course they don't die Which is embarrassing to all concernedAnd eventually Katrine gets to her friend's home and meets Captain Blairand he turns out to be Captain Bedford as was obvious as soon as she started falling in love with him because there are Rules in this kind of fictionAnd it was all kind of silly but very fun and full of characters behaving in the midst of a rather Victorian plot in very real rather than Victorian idealised ways which is one of the things I like so about Mrs George de Horne Vaizey's books One of her best ones

This was on the romantic side for me but still fun By that I mean that most of the plot centers around people falling in love in one way or another I liked it but try not to read too much of such thingsit makes me lonelyHowever it was a really interesting story; my interest never once wandered and I read it all in one day I must admit though that if I'd had the hard copy I would not have been able to resist the urge to peek aheadI read the ebook edition from Project Gutenburg This one in particular was rather badly edited and at the end the most freuent problem was the substitution of p for f when the capital letter was usedrather odd to have people meeting at Pour in the afternoon
