Excerpt

th the black-browed, dark-eyed beauty of a Cleopatra, for there was some Italian blood in her veins. It was given out occasionally by the Press that she had been a theatre-dresser, an organ-grinder, and fifty other things; but nevertheless, illiterate, common and ill-bred, she had yet achieved fame--or rather, perhaps, notoriety---by her dancing and sheer animal good looks.

As a matter of fact she owed her success primarily to Jasper Vermont, who, as a young man and during a quarrel with his father, had lodged in the same house with the handsome sisters, Julia, and Ada Lester, the latter then being only about fifteen years of age. He had fallen violently in love with Julia, then in the height of her beauty, and had cruelly deceived her.

This was a great story of good overcoming evil and finding true love. The ending was bitter sweet though, with the loss of an innocent life outweighing the happiness that usually comes at the end of a romance.

****.

A good story by an author of "dime novels" for women. Although it is a romance, it's not overly melodramatic. The characters are interesting and there are plenty of plot twists to keep you reading.
