Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A collection of ten stories by Collins. Framing these tales is the situation of a young lady staying with three older brothers in Wales. The son of one of the brothers is in love with her, but he is away. In order to entice the lady to stay until the young man can return home, the brothers agree to tell a story each evening.

Good read. I enjoyed the brothers stories to keep her there. I couldn't wait to find out what happened.
