Mary Hastings Bradley

Romance / Historical / Historical Fiction

"Maria Angelina Santonini, youngest daughter of an Italian count, is sent to America with the avowed purpose of securing a rich husband. Maria is extremely beautiful, as all heroines should be...[S]oon after arriving upon these fair shores [she] meets a handsome young journalist. The gay life of New York is a surprise to Maria, who has been brought up in that old-fashioned Italian way and has never talked to a young man alone. This gives the author opportunity to have a lot of fun at the poor little heroine's expense...Mrs. Bradley commands a sprightly albeit thin style and makes the best of the rather meager plot...[A]n obvious little sugar-plum of a book, it is to be read for enjoyment only."
