Living the life of a wealthy man, Kenneth Fortescue receives devastating news from his father. But he is only able to learn incomplete facts about his past, because a name has been obliterated from a very important letter. Two women are vying for Kenneth’s attention — Lady Violet, the young daughter of Lady Earlswood, and Marjorie Douglas, the daughter of a widowed parson’s wife. Written in 1905 by the much-loved author Mrs. O. F. Walton, this Lighthouse edition has been lightly abridged and edited to make it easier to read and understand today. This romantic mystery story gives an intriguing glimpse into the class extremes that existed in Edwardian England, with wealthy titled families on one side, and some families living in terrible poverty on the other.
