Overview

This book is a result of an effort made by us towards making a contribution to the preservation and repair of original classic literature.
In an attempt to preserve, improve and recreate the original content, we have worked towards:
1. Type-setting & Reformatting: The complete work has been re-designed via professional layout, formatting and type-setting tools to re-create the same edition with rich typography, graphics, high quality images, and table elements, giving our readers the feel of holding a 'fresh and newly' reprinted and/or revised edition, as opposed to other scanned & printed (Optical Character Recognition - OCR) reproductions.
2. Correction of imperfections: As the work was re-created from the scratch, therefore, it was vetted to rectify certain conventional norms with regard to typographical mistakes, hyphenations, punctuations, blurred images, missing content/pages, and/or other related subject matters, upon our consideration. Every attempt was made to rectify the imperfections related to omitted constructs in the original edition via other references. However, a few of such imperfections which could not be rectified due to intentional\unintentional omission of content in the original edition, were inherited and preserved from the original work to maintain the authenticity and construct, relevant to the work.
We believe that this work holds historical, cultural and/or intellectual importance in the literary works community, therefore despite the oddities, we accounted the work for print as a part of our continuing effort towards preservation of literary work and our contribution towards the development of the society as a whole, driven by our beliefs. We are grateful to our readers for putting their faith in us and accepting our imperfections with regard to preservation of the historical content. HAPPY READING!

About the Author

About the Author
Irish novelist George Augustus Moore (1852 - 1933) wrote short stories and books in addition to being a poet, art critic and dramatist. He studied art in Paris during the 1870s and befriended many of leading French artists and writers.
He was one of the first English-language authors to absorb the wisdom of French realists, and was particularly influenced by Émile Zola. His work influenced James Joyce, according to biographer Richard Ellmann.
Moore's books are outside the mainstream of Irish and British literature and he is sometimes regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist.

The novel ends in a similar way to how it begins, which is a nice conceit to show how Esthers lowly station in life remains the same but she has matured in some ways beyond those above her social class.
