Written in 1849 when Louisa Alcott was only seventeen years old, this long-lost literary treasure is at last available to delight everyone who has ever read - and loved - Little women. Set in England in the last century the story is a charming romance between two lovers from different stations in life - the beautiful but impverished Edith and the noble Lord Percy. Edith's nemesis, Lady Ida, is a model villainess, who in her quest for Lord Percy's love attempts to push Edith off a boat, then off a cliff, and finally to spook the heroine's horse with Edith facing certain death. But fate is kind and Edith's fortunes take a sudden turn for the best. Lady Ida gets her comeuppance; and Edith and Lord Percy are united.
