Wickedly funny and delightfully sad, Three Ladies Beside the Sea is a tale of love found, love lost, and love never-ending. Edward Gorey's off-kilter Edwardian maidens are the perfect accompaniment to Rhoda Levine's lilting rhymes. The place is remote: Three houses beside the sea. The Characters are Few: Laughing Edith of Ecstasy, Edith so happy and gay. Smiling Catherine of Compromise, She smiles her life away. And then there is Alice of Hazard, A dangerous life leads she. The question in the plot is quite simple: Why is Alice up in a tree? The answer can be discovered: Edith and Catherine do.
