    1. This is vintage fiction from a British writer, Mrs Humphry Ward 1851 1920 Her books contain strong religious themes, which may be a turn off to some Her deft handling of Christian ideas was what made this book worthwhile for me Julie LeBreton grew up in France, the illegitimate child of an aristocratic mother After her parents deaths she returns to England as a lady s companion Lady Henry accuses her of being a power hungry, manipulative vixen For the first half of the novel you aren t really su [...]

    2. Julie Le Breton is the daughter of Lady Rose More specifically, she is the illegitimate daughter of an extramarital romance, one which severed her mother s relations with her aristocratic family.Twenty five years later, Lady Rose and Julie s father both since passed away, Julie comes to London to act as companion to an ailing but proud and fiery socialite, Lady Flora Henry.Lady Henry and a few others are aware of Julie s parentage, which if widely known would cause a scandal and force her to lea [...]

    5. I read that this was the best selling novel in the US in 1903 There can t have been a lot of competition I can t offhand think of a single redeeming feature of this collection of cardboard characters, stock scenery descriptions and implausible plot lines Pah.

    6. I decided to read this book because it was mentioned in an article on page 2 of the Goulburn Herald on 22 May 1903 I blogged about the article, which features my home town of Gunning, in October last year It was the number one novel in the Publishers Weekly bestseller list in the United States for 1903 I understand that Mrs Humphrey Ward, as her use of her husband s name suggests, was an anti suffragette That the novel smacks of all things conservative does not take away from the brilliance of h [...]
