"The Soul of Kindness is a study in self-deception all the more telling for the deceptively gentle way in which it unfolds. It is the story of a young, newly-married girl of Botticelli-like sweetness who believes herself to be 'the soul of kindness' but who, with the best motives and quite unintentionally, wrecks every life she comes in contact with. On the surface all is sweetness and light; only gradually, as the author drops apparently casual details into the background, does the reader understand (as Flora never will) what fearful damage she is doing."
