This book, reputedly based on the true story of a 19th-century San Francisco scandal, doesn't really have much to recommend it. Lives of the male and female protagonists are irreparably ruined due to a letter that goes astray. There is also an abusive drunken mother whose husband and daughter continue to live with and tolerate her. The book has one redeeming virtue: For San Franciscans or anyone else interested in that area's history, it offers an interesting colorful depiction of the Hispanic and Anglo society at that time.

A visiting Englishman falls in love with a beautiful California heiress hiding a horrible secret.

eBook downloaded from Gutenberg. Course of true love complicated by outside influences is one thing. Course of true love complicated by the stupidity and stubbornness of the people involved leaves me cold. I quit about halfway through. The characters are pretty well-drawn, but since neither of them use their brains, who cares? Nina in particular has a huge self-destructive streak. Spelling, grammar, and Kindle formatting are acceptable. I never figured out what the title was supposed to mean.
