Emma is obliged to return and live with her widowed father, Mr. Watson, after her aunt who raised her contracts a foolish second marriage. She is one of four daughters and two sons who has been better educated than all her sisters by her wealthy aunt. Emma finds herself chagrined by the reckless behavior of her two sisters trying to chase their future husbands.
Back to the dark days of ' gentle' women having to 'catch' a man with money in order to have a home of her own, as they could not manage their own inheritance. Tale of 'socially inferior lady who marries quite outside her 'class', to the chagrin of her peers.
I was no so impressed with Gasine Smith's narration. Her diction was excellent, but her tone rather uninteresting; she did not add any colour to the romance.
