About the Book
The publisher of this book utilises modern printing technologies as well as photocopying processes for reprinting and preserving rare works of literature that are out-of-print or on the verge of becoming lost. This book is one such reprint.
Written in 1878, this novel was inspired by one of the scandals of the 1870s, concerning a pretender to the Tichborne baronetcy. The real heroine of this novel is Mary Germain, vivacious, naive and rebellious in her marriage to Lord George Germain, a true and truly autocratic English gentleman.
