A Lady of Quality
Frances Hodgson BurnettISBN: 1606643878;
Frances Hodgson Burnett is best remembered for books like The Secret Garden and Little Lord Fauntleroy. But this tale -- set in England at the close of the seventeenth century -- is at once of a kind (Burnett's storytelling doesn't really change, whatever she's writing about) and utterly different (people with names like Clorinda talking in thees and thous really does color the tale). Still, it's Burnett, and it's fun. If you read and enjoyed The Lost Prince and Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Dawn of a Tomorrow, A Lady of Quality is sure to please.
