The leading character is a wealthy young American woman, living in England, who is a countess there because of her ruined husband but when he dies prematurely, she decides to become independent of her family-in-law which is surprising in her time. The plot becomes complicated and takes unexpected turns with thefts and murders. The context, dialogue and events are typical of a Victorian romance novel in which the pace of the narrative is not neglected. It is an easy and enjoyable novel that combines mystery, intrigue and touches of humor.
