Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER V. AT THE COASTGUARD STATION. Miss Appleton, a young person whose chignon and crinoline were much larger than Lady Susan considered suitable to a coastguardsman's daughter, opened the door with an airy flourish, revealing behind her an exquisitely neat apartment, brilliant with polished surfaces, its only litter the materials of an unmade dress, upon which she had evidently been at work.
