KIRKUS REVIEW

Brigitte is a poor seamstress saving patches for a jacket for Ferdinand, and he is a musician who becomes famous, forgets Brigitte, and proposes to the rich and beautiful Clarissa--who ""agreed, because Ferdinand was famous, not because she loved him."" But Ferdinand comes to his senses on the way to the wedding and Brigitte wakens from a dream of meadows to ""a cartload of lilies and snowdrops, daffodils and violets."" Unredeemed sentimentality, all the more unpalatable for Watts' awkward writing and saccharine paintings.
