Even his King could not force him to give up the woman he loved! One of America's most famous and beloved historical novels.

Twice adapted to the screen, first as a silent film in 1916 by Jesse L. Lasky’s Famous Players company, directed by George Melford and starring Wallace Reid and Mae Murray. Then again in 1922, Lasky recreated the film starring Bert Lytell and Betty Compson.

parson, and sheer off to my brethren, who truly are of a more clerical appearance. Whereas if they could only look upon the inner man! You have been long in choosing, but have doubtless chosen" - He glanced from me to the woman beside me, and broke off with open mouth and staring eyes. There was excuse, for her beauty was amazing. "A paragon," he ended, recovering himself.

"Marry us quickly, friend," I said. "Clouds are gathering, and we have far to go."

He came down from his mound, and we went and stood before him. I had around my neck the gold chain given me upon a certain occasion by Prince Maurice, and in lieu of other ring I now twisted off the smallest link and gave it to her.

"Your name?" asked Master Sparrow, opening his book.

"Ralph Percy, Gentleman."

"And yours?" he demanded, staring at her with a somewhat too apparent delight in her beauty.

I love this book! To Have and to Hold is a sadly forgotten epic in the classic adventurous vein of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Its wonderfully old-fashioned: Ralph Percy, its hero, is noble and selfless, Jocelyn Leigh, its heroine, is beautiful and seemingly haughty, Lord Carnal, the villain, well, his name is no lie.

Well worth reading, if you love classic romance and adventure. Also, a new movie will be released Winter 2012.
