Summary

Jane and Elsie Melville were raised by their kindly but eccentric uncle, Mr Hogarth who believed that women were just as good as men, and thus gave his nieces a boy’s education. Upon his death, they find that he has left his entire fortune to his heretofore unknown son and left them only a small allowance, expecting them to make their own way in the world using the education he furnished them. Will the girls survive in a world that expects them, at the most, to become governesses?

- Readers

I found nothing wrong with the readers. The first was not at the speed of lightning and the second, the "southern accent " spoke clearly and with some effort to do "voices". I am profoundly grateful for the readers who give of their precious time to read these books. Audio books produced by paid readers are expensive, especially if you listen to five or so books a week. Thank you to all the readers for so many hours of enjoyment!!
