"Peattie's fiction is almost invariably concerned with the problems of male-female relationships and those of parents and children. Reviewers have praised the breadth of her insight into the inner lives of men and women and her sense of the comic as well as the pathetic." [encycolpedia dot com].
A fragile girl, in need of sympathy, marries a Anglo-Italian signor, who also happens to be a hunchback.
