Publisher's Summary

Robin (1921) is a historical novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Excerpt from the book: "In the years when Victorian standards and ideals began to dance an increasingly rapid jig, there lived in Mayfair, in a slice of a house, Robert Gareth-Lawless and his lovely young wife. So light and airy was she to earthly vision and so diaphanous the texture of her mentality that she was known as 'Feather.' The slice of a house between two comparatively stately mansions in the 'right street' was a rash venture of the honeymoon. Robert - well born, irresponsible, without resources - evolved a carefully detailed method of living upon nothing whatever, of keeping out of the way of duns, and telling lies with aptness and outward gaiety. But a year of giving smart little dinners and going to smart big dinners ended in a condition somewhat akin to the feat of balancing oneself on the edge of a sword. Then Robin was born. She was an intruder and a calamity, of course."

Narrator

Helen Smith has a monotone voice. It's almost boring to listen to her. She doesn't read with inflection.
