Overview

First published in 1850, the story of Olive is a variant on that of Jane Eyre. The titular character is not an orphan like that in Jane Eyre, but she suffers from a physical deformity that acts as a similar social impediment. Olive grows up sheltered, thinking nothing is wrong with her. However when her overprotective nursemaid dies, it is a great shock to her to know that she is not attractive to men and will therefore probably never marry. Even though Olive is determined to support herself and be happy in spite of her hardships, she eventually does find love in a very unlikely person.

Contains black and white illustrations by G. Bowers.
