If anything can console me for the loss of my dear grandfather, it is the thought that you will come back at last, and that I shall see you once more. You can never know, dearest father, what a bitter sorrow this cruel separation has been to me. It has seemed so hard that we who are so rich should have been parted as we have been, while poor children have their fathers with them. Money seems such a small thing when it cannot bring us the presence of those we love. And I do love you, dear papa, truly and devotedly, though I cannot even remember your face, and have not so much as a picture of you to recall you to my recollection.

Another entertaining read from Mrs Braddon. I felt that the "bad characters" were better realised than the "good" ones who were rather insipid and one dimensional. And the ending was a little rushed and disappointing but overall I still enjoyed it. Read full review

It's a great story, but not the best of Braddon. Read full review
