This is the very popular story of two very prim, proper, kind-hearted and devout spinster sisters who make it their life’s work to comfort and alleviate the suffering of lonely old gentlemen. Add in a nephew who works as a drama critic, a nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and another nephew who has returned home with revenge on his mind, and you have a hilarious comedy about good people trying to do good deeds, and bad people doing very bad deeds indeed.
Recommended for age 14 and up
