With the discovery of The Pearl, Pleasure Bound and The Loves of a Musical Student, the previously suppressed of underground Victorian and Edwardian literature has been exposed to our scrutiny. Yvonne is one such classic plucked from the abundant treasure-rove.
The charming, enthusiastic heroine is taken in hand by her understanding and knowledgeable mentor and governess, Miss Mary. Together, the two ladies study the art of love and science of botany under the considerate tutelage of M.
Grosvit, a true master of his craft. Throughout her education, Yvonne proves--to the complete satisfaction of her demanding governess and the chivalric Mr. Grosvit--to be an exceptionally bright, willing and able pupil.
