The strong Anna describes an exacting German apartment servant; Melanctha explores the affection affair of an African-American girl; and The mild Lena narrates the destiny of a sufferer German maid. the 3 narratives are self reliant of one another, yet all are set within the fictional city of Bridgepoint.
