Abstract:

This book is a subtle study of love and passing violence told with Anne Goodwin Winslow's usual charm and framed by the serenity and peace of mind of a bygone day. This book slyly satirizes the romanticism of young Maury Thornton, who conceives that he is dedicated to a hopeless love for an older woman, Mrs. Fairleigh. The felicitous life of Cherry Station invariably provides an enchanting comedy of manners. Maury, the romantic young cavalier, will not look at another woman even when she is thrust under his nose, as Mrs. Fairleigh conspires. Amy is a delightful person in her own right, even if at first she symbolizes Northern egalitarianism and quotes Emerson. There is much subtle comedy in Mrs. Fairleigh's efforts to make Maury take notice of Amy, and the suspenseful love story is given added excitement by a murder, the intrigues of an arsonist, and the tragic idyll of a woman who sacrificed conviction to convention. - Jacket flap.
