By J.M. Barrie

From the author of Peter Pan comes an enchanting tale with both wit and wisdom. In her youth, “Phoebe of the ringlets” imagines marrying Valentine Brown, but he enlists and is deployed overseas. Upon his return years later, Valentine is shocked at the sight of Phoebe – older, tired and overworked – which she interprets as rejection. Through a comical series of misunderstandings, Phoebe finds herself impersonating a younger and invented relative, Livvy, to revive Valentine’s interest, or perhaps, have her revenge? Only the truth in love can deliver them all.
