A lovely, feel-good, escapist read on a cold February day!
In Radstow (Bristol) live two spinster sisters' their lovely younger sister, Rose, has some sort of romance going on with local landowner Francis Sales. And then, unexpectedly billeted on them, comes young niece, Henrietta, daughter of their late scapegrace brother.
There is a rivalry between the two younger women, and uncertainty until the last page...
