Lady Rose's Daughter

Lady Rose's Daughter by Mary Augusta Ward
By: (1851-1920)

"Julie Le Breton enchants almost everyone around her with her smart, charm, and excellent manners. She almost belongs to the English highest nobility, but just almost… Her parents, 2 aristocrats who ran away from England in order to be together, could never marry - because her mother was married to someone else. Therefore, she is forced to work for the cruel Lady Henry Delafield, who hates her. She has a few good friends, amongst whom are 2 admirers… And that is only the beginning. This is a compelling drama, set mostly in England, among the English aristocracy. By turns smart, funny and moving, it's the story of a strong and good woman- just trying to survive and make the correct choices. But sometimes, doing what is right doesn't make you happy. Only by giving up the man she loves, can Julie get the honorable place she deserves- beside a man whos strong love for her "saved" her.

This novel has been adapted for a play in Broadway in 1903 (the year in which it was published), and a silent film in 1920."

"Hullo! No! Yes! upon my soul, it is Jacob! Why, Delafield, my dear fellow, how are you?"

So saying on a February evening a good many years ago an elderly gentleman in evening dress flung himself out of his cab, which had just stopped before a house in Bruton Street, and hastily went to meet a young man who was at the same moment stepping out of another hansom a little farther down the pavement...
