This book is quite short and not one of Gissings best. But it is well written and pulls one along to the end to see what happens. It involves a young man, broke, down and out, who unexpectedly receives a sum of money and decides to spend it all living as a gentleman, as he would like to live, carefree and without worry for as long as the money lasts. Then, visiting a friend, he sees a woman's photograph in a family album and falls in love with the woman. He learns where she is and pursues her. She also is not living the good life and he ransoms her away with him to Paris and spends all his money on her and her girlfriend hoping that perhaps she will eventually fall in love with him. Then an old friend of his enters the picture ( a well to do gentleman) and things become entangled between all the characters. The ending is a surprise and quite interesting. If you like love tales, then do read.
