Three classic sentimental stories intertwined, remarkable particularly for the pleasant humourous dialog. Gretchen, an angel, marries a cripple she loves, though he thinks he could not give her any happiness. Her sister Kitty marries the man she loves, but a man so placid and clumsy with whom she is never assured he loves her. Mrs. Charteris is a beautiful coquette widow with many suitors, and who, to her great surprise, falls in love. There is also the too-precocious adolescent Flora, which is perhaps the one real character in the book, and who is as insupportable as Richardson's Charlotte Grandison, the model for such ones. And finally "All's Well that Ends Well."
