"The spirit of true romance perfades this delectable love-story of an American Architect and the daughter of a line of Earls that stretched back to the Conqueror. The genuine sentiment of the novel is varied with touchesof shrewd common sense applied to some very venerable ideas and institutio ns. The psychic element in the plot recalls the author's delightful novel 'Amos Judd'. There is mystery in the plot, wit in the telling, and a radical, not to say idealistic, attitude toward modern life that is refreshing; above all, the novel has charm." - from dj fragment affixed to flyleaf.
