When the out of work governess, Miss Philpott, meets Francine once more, she could never guess how her life could be transformed. In the brand new Edwardian age there are many changes for women. But Miss Philpott is now 40 and feels that all the innovations of the new century have little to do with her. But how wrong she is.

With Francine's help she is about to become a modern woman and discover that she has talents she could never have dreamed of. Her abilities are only limited by her imagination, and as an avid reader, Miss Philpott's imagination is prodigious.

This lighthearted novella continues the adventures of Francine, the discarded ladies maid of the original short story, whose effect on the life of all around her is joyfully empowering.

It adds romance and adventure to its tale of women emerging from the shadows to claim their own lives.

Francine's confidence and passion to life in the face of societal restrictions opens a new and exciting world to a woman almost overcome by the narrow confines of her previous existence. The rest Miss Philpott does for herself.

Nice change of pace.

A really nice vignette. I like Francine. Interesting short view of the working poor. I hope there's more.
