Daphne

by Mrs Humphry Ward

The story of an international marriage--of a young Englishman's love for a bright American girl of wealth, and the failure of their married life through misunderstanding and jealousy. With all her crying faults Daphne Floyd, the heroine, is an interesting character--one of the best delineations of a peculiar type in recent fiction--and human in every word and action.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem.
