LEOCADIE

A mystery surrounds the coming of the little French girl to visit her uncle, an eccentric musician who gives folk-song concerts. She falls in love with the son of a wealthy lawyer who has other plans for the youth -- but the son defies his father and the gossips and marries Leocadie. It appears, ultimately, that she is the daughter of the erstwhile wife of the musician and another man (Sound familiar?) -- As for the telling, although it is 20th century Canada they talk 18th century lavender and old lace, whimsy-dimsy in speech and characterization. Pass it up -- Both dull and saccharine.
