Excerpt

Zora rose in protest. "The whole human race is man-mad! Even mother. I think everybody is detestable!"

The maid announced "Mr. Mordaunt Prince," and a handsome man with finely cut, dark features and black hair parted in the middle and brushed tightly back over the head, entered the room. Emmy presented him to Zora, who recognized him as the leading man at the theater where Emmy was playing. Zora exchanged a few polite commonplaces with the visitor and then took her leave. Emmy accompanied her to the front door of the flat.

A beautiful, romantic story of a woman “Zora” who has sworn off love, and the men that win her heart. The characters are colorful honest people that truly care about each other, the most unique being “Septimus” who generously sacrifices whatever he has in his love for Zora and his friends, and thanks to Septimus’ efforts, the story comes to a happy ending.
Well written and entertaining. This follows the classic style of romances written in early 1900’s and you don’t want to miss reading if a fan of that era.
