Abstract

**Warning: Some of the language or characterizations in this book are the product of the time when this book was written, and are no longer considered acceptable.**

A young New Yorker, Evelyn Bulger, is sent to Florida by her father to get her, unwillingly, away from New York society. On the train ride down, she meets and falls in love with a noble Englishman, George Cranmere. Embarrassed by her father’s business of bile exterminator, Evelyn decides to pursue the Englishman once they arrive in the city of St. Augustine. To try and hide her family's business, she insists her last name is ‘Bulgee.’  The course to true love is not always smooth, or kept in one locale, but requires patience, a foot fetish, and a few more trips.

Local locations visited or mentioned include, but are not limited to the Florida East Coast railway and train station, the Hotel Ponce de Leon, King Street, the Alcazar Hotel, and an orange grove.
