Review Text

Improbabilities, impossibilities aside, the dower rights of this kind of story include a captive audience... All unprotesting too as they follow Luise, an English writer, through the had-she-but-known-and-little-did-she-suspect disasters which attend her impulsive marriage to Danish Otto Winther. Following the secret ceremony, she learns that he's the heir to a title, a castle, and le petit mal; along with the seizures, there are lapses in his behavior and discrepancies in his story and he stubbornly refuses to acknowledge her as his wife. Even after the accident in which she loses his child and he disowns her altogether. Read on... why's probably the best she's done (and she's doing better with each one). There will be those who will find it emphatically empathetic. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
