FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

Certainly one of the most poignant and rueful of Janes' stories is this one about an impecunious journalist, in love with a young London lady of quality, who conspires with her to marry her rich relative who faces imminent death from an incurable disease. But unforeseen is the affection that the journalist begins to feel for the dying girl. And, unforeseen, too, the tragedy that ensues. For the dying girl finds out about the precedent, secret engagement before the fiance can express his true love for her, and she welcomes death as a merciful release from her humiliation.
"It offers great and distinct pleasures. One is the precision of James' dialogue" - like an iceberg of cut diamonds, gleaming on the surface and trailing beneath it a huge hidden area of unexpressed emotion. - London Observer

"Rich in texture, subtle in motivation, distinguished in dialogue, and delicate in rosonance - a triumph of the spirit." - London Times
