There we meet the famous sisters-in-law as they await the coming of the younger brother's betrothed. The parlour is a perfect ""set""- complete to lustre and Turkey carpet. Then comes Miss Davis, a wholly wrong note. They do their best, but their best is not enough, and ultimately they find themselves with the misfit firmly entrenched, a neurotic invalid, with secret aspirations for power at cost to the whole Sylvester clan. Aunt Charlotte, blind to the truth of the matter, plays Fanny Davis' game until the small niece who tells the story turns Cupid- spills the applecart and the truth is out.
