VIVIANS by M. V. Hughes

The London Child of the seventies was a ""find"" to the only-too-limited group of readers who ""discovered"" it. Perhaps this will serve to bring the other volume to the fore again, as it deserves. This is virtually a continuation, though, with its spontaneous charm, it, too, can stand on its own feet. The story of the relatives of the London child, and especially of the two sisters, Mary and Tony, their deep devotion, their love affairs, their travels, their family life. Excellent reading and a fine tribute to the females of the Victorian age. Mary's troubles with her suitors, her ""derring-do"" in Spain, Tony's prolonged engagement to the Norwegian boy. Mary's subsequent marriage. Cornwall, in the early and middle 19th century.
