Romance

Sophia

Description: 

The Irishman, a little breathed by his victory, wasted no time in vaunting it. The girl had witnessed it with worshipping eyes; he could trust her to make the most of it. "Quick," he cried, "or we shall be in trouble!" And sheathing his sword, he caught the trembling Sophia by the hand, and ran with her down the path. They turned a corner; a little way before her.

My Lady Rotha

Description: 

My Lady Rotha is written by Stanley J. Weyman. The room inside was low and small and bare, with an earthen floor and no fireplace. On a ragged pallet in one corner lay an elderly man, to whose wasted face and pallid cheeks a long white moustache, which strayed over the coverlet, gave an air of incongruous fierceness. His bright eyes were fixed on the door as if he listened. A child, three or four years.

But Joan sat on with mutinous thoughts, and the man who not so long ago had stalked the beasts whose heads and skins were silent reminders of his strength, lay back in his chair with nodding head.

Was It Right to Forgive

Description: 

Was It Right to Forgive is written by Amelia Edith Barr. The next morning Harry went to New York. Mrs. Filmer, Rose, and Adriana stood on the piazza and watched him leap into the dog-cart, gather up the reins, and drive away at a rate supposed to be necessary in order to "catch the train." He looked very handsome and resolute, and the house felt empty without his predominating presence.

On their right, a little way from the road, stood a small, shed-like building where the rocket life-saving apparatus of the Board of Trade was housed. In front, the roadway, and indeed all down the "Gap" and across the sands to where the waves lapped.

The Treasure of Heaven

Description: 

The Treasure of Heaven is written by Marie Corelli. The deep bell of Westminster chimed midnight, that hour of picturesque ghostly tradition, when simple village maids shudder at the thought of traversing a dark lane or passing a churchyard, and when country folks of old-fashioned habits and principles are respectably in bed and for the most part sleeping.

The History of Sir Richard Calmady

Description: 

The History of Sir Richard Calmady is written by Lucas Malet. The strongest, most original, most absorbing novel of the season. It is not only interesting from first to last, but it is thoroughly well written. I do now know of any English novel of the last twelve months which so thoroughly deserves respectful treatment as does 'Richard Calmady.'
