Esmerelda – Frances Hodgson Burnett

Esmerelda_-_Frances_Hodgson_Burnett_cover

A French couple gossip about and meet an American family in Paris.

Disappointingly weak short story from the author of The Secret Garden. The accents grate, the ending is predictable. It’s not downright horrible, but there’s little to recommend this piece, and it certainly doesn’t match Burnett’s best.
