The story of a young artist who is reputed to love beauty above all else in the world, but who, when blinded through an accident, gains life's greatest happiness. A rare story of the great passion of two real people superbly capable of love, its sacrifices and its exceeding reward.

suggested unlimited spaciousness and comfort within; and was redeemed from positive ugliness without, by the fine ivy, magnolia trees, and wistaria, of many years' growth, climbing its plain face, and now covering it with a mantle of soft green, large white blooms, and a cascade of purple blossom.

A terrace ran the full length of the house, bounded at one end by a large conservatory, at the other by an aviary. Wide stone steps, at intervals, led down from the terrace on to the soft springy turf of the lawn. Beyond--the wide park; clumps of old trees, haunted by shy brown deer; and, through the trees, fitful gleams of the river, a narrow silver ribbon, winding gracefully in and out between long grass, buttercups, and cow-daisies.

The sun-dial pointed to four o'clock.

I have had this book on my shelf for over 50 years.

The Rosary is one of the most beautiful books ever written, showing great strength and sometimes human weakness in it's characters.
I can't recommend it enough.

One of my favorite books. It is as good as Jane Austen. It made me laugh and cry. As soon as I was done with it, I went and looked up the rest of Florence L. Barclay's books and all of them I could find.

This is a great book that is similar to Jane Eyre in some ways. I recommend it to anybody who is looking for an uplifting reading experience that restores your faith in true love.

I think it's another Jane Eyre. It's a lovely story, very touching and very romantic. Love it as much as Jane Eyre. I recommend it highly to all those who like true romance.

I loved this romance, also The waitrss of Shenstone (I think that is the original name of the book). It's so sad, so wonderful, so lovely. I cried when I read it.
It mean that it was written in 1910. Can you imagine this?
