Halcyone

by Elinor Glyn

This is a most beautiful book.
A child, orphaned is sent to live with her great aunts. Their life in a country mansion, in ruined grandeur, is completely isolated.
Halcyone discovers her own way of understanding and interpreting the world around her. Strongly influenced by a book she has found of Greek myths, and her interaction with the nature she is surrounded by and loves.
She grows, and romance enters her life.

The Inner Shrine

by Basil King

A romance in the pride and prejudice style, without the humour, and an awful lot of pride and prejudice.
Set in France and America, I enjoyed the first half but the end seemed rather convoluted.

The Unspeakable Gentleman

by John P. Marquand

This is such a classic in style.An early example of the really cool hero.
Sword fights, misunderstandings dramatic verbal and physical duals,and a plot that moves so that you can\'t see the complete picture.
Set in America among the landed gentry at the time of the French revolution.
I hope others will enjoy it as much as I did.
