The Two Vanrevels 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Wonderful old-fashioned romance involving the classic elements of "star-crossed" lovers and mistaken identity, with a twist at the end which, although heavily foreshadowed and unsurprising, is nonetheless moving. Plenty of scanning errors in this copy, particularly where the author makes use of song lyrics, but nothing that can't easily be gotten past... especially since we live in a world where song lyrics can simply be looked up on the internet.
