From the Preface: "In this book I have told the plain story of a young woman who was roughly handled by fate; in her early youth the walls of fair-seeming with which prosperity had surrounded her were broken down; her comfortable down pillows were rudely pulled away, the cotton-wool stopping plucked her ears, the rose-coloured glasses snatched from her eyes; and then, like many another, she was set upon the prodigious stage of the greatest city in the world to do battle with the monster alone."
