A fine novel.
This is set in Australia, post WW1. There were many spinsters at that time, as so many young men were lost in the war. Missy is aged 33, and she finds her existence so drab through no fault of her own that she seizes her idea, chooses to disregard the deceit involved, and finds her happiness. I loved the ending, and if it's like a fairy-tale with the villains getting what they deserved, then that's fine with me.
This is a fine novel. by Lucas
