The Ragged Edge

by Harold MacGrath

A slow evolving romance set in the China Seas, where important clues/facts are revealed just at the appropriate time. A young woman and man of two totally differant backgrounds meet under common necessities. Unlike other novels of this period the author doesn't try to impress with his vocabulary. Would give 5 stars except the ending got a little congested but happy.

The Bondboy

by George W. Ogden

A good read of Joe Newbolt whose mother is tricked into selling him into bondage by a cruel farmer. Joe is accused of murder and must make a honorable decision to keep from hanging. Not as much unnecessary verb age as most novels during this period.

Air Service Boys Over the Enemy's Lines

by Charles Amory Beach

This book is one that was fun to read. I had the complete set of the Air Service Books - Originals.

They are as exciting today as they were for me 20 some odd years.

The Barrier

by Rex Beach

An easy and enjoyable read of adventure and romance. Characters could be stronger but great plot. A great book to curl up with on a rainy day.
