Well, it's a love story again – the spectator can sigh. This is not strange. As this work at that time was as boldly thinking about the social problems of his own age and his unsustainable conditions that he could not remain in memory other than a bitter sweet love story in which a beautiful millionaire girl, returning home from America, got round by a Hungarian gentry.

However, there are countless moral, ethical, economic, and emotional issues in this play. Yes, it is a love story, but it's not half-hearted, because in this work happy end is that there is no happy end. The whole giant lie, organized by an entire apparatus of acts in order to reach the goal. 

Mikszáth's work reveals exactly the true personality of everybody. And however it is about love, and we may even cheer for the lovers in connection with the many complications, and we can sympathize with the gentry, ingenuity, liberality – it simply cannot be a happy ending. Because where this piece ends, female self-esteem begins somewhere.
