A pretty little love story, telling of a young man who comes home after studying painting in Paris. He is loafing along the shore when he happens to find a little tea shop and becomes enamored of the young woman who tends it.

Written by a popular and prolific novelist of the time, Ralph Henry Barbour (1870-1944). It features five full-page, color illustrations by Clarence F. Underwood (1871-1929), noted for his illustrating of more than forty Saturday Evening Post covers. Another illustrator, Edward Stratton Holloway (1859-1939), contributes margin decorations to each page, being a series of eight sketches which repeat throughout. An attractive copy.
