"The Story of the White Violets"

A dainty Victorian children's fairytale of purity and forgiveness from "Brownies and Rose-leaves"

A moonlight party excites the naughty violets into wakefulness, and the Fairy Queen
delights fairyland in her wondrous gown. Poem "A Charm of Roses" adds a sweet ending.
Antique images of children in fanciful studio photography poses and dreamy portraits.
