The Barrier to Intimacy by Alice Miller (1915)
by Victoria Madden
This is a fun and surprisingly modern short story that I found when looking up the background for the serial in the January issue of the Girl’s Own Paper and Woman’s Magazine for 1916. There’s a distinctly Wodehousian tone in the dilemma of the two characters – in the light of which the placement of the particular prayers at the footer seems a little misjudged.
