      I enjoyed the novel fragment jewel like prose and a fairy tale narrative, creepy at turns and beautifully strange I wish it had been finished it is a gaping, unanswered question The stories are all purple and unforgivably sentimental and yet there are moments of genuine pathos One senses the writer trapped in the notions of her day, wanting both a wide audience as well as to speak truth, and is trapped in between.

      Not I am afraid her best in my opinion, and not one I would recommend.
