I enjoyed this J.L. Merrow story. At about 90 pages, it was long enough to have some plot and growth to it but short enough to be an easy read.
It's set after WWI when two men meet in a boarding house. Both characters were appealing and the 'secret' revealed at the end was interesting and very in period. In prefer J.L. humorous contemporary stories as a rule, but this was a very nice historical.
