The Princess Aline

by Richard Harding Davis

The Princess Aline is a sweet love story told with charming and delicate art, in Mr. Davis' own bright way. The heroine, Miss Morris, is a lovable young woman with heaps of common sense, sympathy, wit and humor, so wonderfully and vividly set forth that the reader finds it hard to forgive Carlton for not sooner discovering that he loved her instead of pursuing the Princess Aline in a useless love-chase. Mr. Davis has a teasing way of withholding his secret until the very last moment, but it is easy to forgive him, the result is usually so pleasing. Mr. Davis shows a comprehensive acquaintance with human nature; he has a simple yet sparkling humor in his treatment of subjects, together with a literary grace which places him in a distinct niche, where few if any rivals will be able to reach him.
