"Treachery don't come natural to beaming youth; but trust and pity, love and constancy, ?they do, thank God!"
In this follow-up to Mrs. Lirriper?s Lodgings, in which Mrs. Lirriper took in lodgers to make ends meet following her husband?s death, the sweet and heart-warming stories of life in Mrs. Lirriper?s house continue. Amidst trouble with her brother-in-law, a continuous rivalry and a neighbourhood fire, Mrs. Lirriper discovers that a dying man in Paris is trying to get a hold of her.
All the hopefulness of the first book come to fruition in Mrs. Lirriper?s Legacy and it is a worthy conclusion.
