Show Excerpt

It proved a strenuous afternoon, yet the young fellow had the right stuff in him to make good, that stubborn pride which never surrenders before difficulties; he shut his teeth, rolled up his shirt-sleeves, and went earnestly to work.

***..

I had to read this book because, well, we share the same name, but not the same life apparently! Beth Norvell is a bit scandelous and her life is rather complicated. There isn't much (if any) inapropriate content though. All in all it's a good read if you have time for a slow start, "vintage" verbage, complicated love triangles and a semi-satisfactory ending. Sure does look cool on my shelf though...
