East Angels

by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Set in Gracias a Dios, a little town lying half asleep on the southern coast of the United States under a sky of almost changeless blue. The heroine, Edgarda Thorne, the child of a New England mother but with Spanish blood in her veins who has lived all her life in the South, is just ripening into womanhood when the story opens. The plot is concerned chiefly with her love affairs, men of totally different types being thus brought into juxtaposition. Like the author's other novels, "East Angels" lacks the romantic and ideal elements, but it is strong in the delineation of everyday character and incident. It is superfluous to say that the workmanship is excellent and the interest well sustained.
