"One of the best of Mrs. Hungerford's harmless charming pot-boilers," said the Athenaeum, "in every way characteristic of her talent." Hoydenish hot-tempered Irish girl Terry O'More, impecunious but exquisitely bewitching and tantalizing in the eyes of her many admirers, finds the right man in the person of a somewhat undemonstrative rich Englishman, Gerrard Trefusis. She marries him at first without loving him, merely for the sake of her young orphan brothers. A masterful lover certainly he is, but whom she is perpetually putting into false positions, that makes his life an alternate plague and delight course. A pleasant, and sometimes farcical novel, full of witty and humourous scenes and dialogue.
