Description

Lucy Trahern is in a tight spot. Her father has gone off to America to make their fortune, her employer's son has just compromised her, and unexpectedly she is out on the street on a rainy London night without a farthing to her name. Alone and lost, Lucy takes a chance and knocks at a small gatehouse for shelter from the storm. Inside she finds two interesting old ladies who are happy to help her - but who are not at all what they seem to be! Soon their scheming forces her into an imposture in high society that could see all of them ruined at the touch of a gossiping whisper. This charming story, full of quirky people and tangled incidents, is a tongue-in-cheek comment on society's posturings and an account of the adventures of a most unusual heroine. "A diverting first novel, sure to captivate genre fans." --Booklist
