by Joseph Conrad

Miss Flora de Barral is the daughter of an imprisoned swindler left to fend for herself, with no real standing in society. She must depend on the kindness of strangers, and some kindnesses come with strings attached. Will meeting Captain Anthony give Flora the dignity and happiness she seeks? The story is told by several different perspectives in this romance novel, the first of Conrad's works to be a popular success.
