520 2 # $a A very good-humoured satire – the story of three designing women, one charming and heartless, the second of uncertain years and intelligent, the third an heiress. Of the two gentlemen who are the respective hopes of the three ladies, one is worldly and debonair, the other is in holy orders. How these ladies work out their individual destinies and what happens to the “third one out” is for the reader to discover. Each dramatic episode of this quaint story is illustrated by Miss Swanwick’s unusual, amusing and decorative drawings. [dust-jacket].
