Excerpt

ise. What could Guy possibly mean? Had his father perhaps made a will, and left the estate to some one else--his uncle, for example? Was this the meaning of Guy's malicious mirth?

"I don't know to what you refer," he said; "but if it's anything that is of importance to me, I ought to know it. What is it?"

I found this book intriguing due to the fact that it was written so long ago and the culture and style was so different than most modern books I read. It was written in second person which was strange but also made you feel connected to the author. I honestly didn\'t know what to expect when I picked up the original copy of this one hundred year old book, but I was pleased with what I found. I would recommend this book to anyone.
