Benson yet. In a. "'The Luck of the Vails,'" she said to herself, and the phrase shaped itself to her steps, a step to a syllable.

Still, with her letters in her hand, she looked in at Evie's room, and, finding her "betwixt and between," went on to her own; and, as her maid did her hair, she opened them. The first was from Harry. "The greatest luck," it ran.

The Luck of the Vails, E.F. Benson The Luck of the Vails is fairly slow, taking its time to build up an atmosphere to set the characters against. Harry Vail is the heir to his family, and he’s just found the most miraculous treasure: a cup called the Luck of the Vails, originally owned by a rather wicked ancestor and said to give the owner luck — whilst putting them in peril of fire, frost.We appreciate the impact a good book can have.

We all like the idea of saving a bit of cash, so when we found out how many good quality used books are out there - we just had to let you know! The Luck of The Vails. Title: The Luck of The Rating: % positive.The Luck of the Vails is slow moving, especially at the beginning, and Benson makes a point of carefully signaling any possible surprises well in advance, preventing the least build up of tension or suspense.

As a result it is unlikely to have wide appeal to modern audiences.
