Excerpt

head over the table, and when he looked up Barry understood that he had accepted the truth at last. "So she's played me false, has she? Married another fellow without troubling to let me know. Well, there's no more to be said, I suppose. I must make up my mind to be the laughing-stock of my friends, to be pointed at by men and women, jeered at in the clubs, as the fellow who was jilted ... thrown over for another fellow!"

He paused; then resumed in a louder tone.

"It's an ugly word, Barry--jilted. And by Jove, it's an ugly thing. Odd how naturally women take to it, isn't it? They won't steal, as a rule--draw the line at murder, but they think nothing of making damned fools of men who are insane enough to believe in them!"

When Owen Rose comes back from a long trip abroad after recovering his health he finds that his fiancee has gotten married to another man. Hurt and angry he vows to marry the first woman that will have him.

Eighteen year old Antonia Gibbs goes to work as the typist for Owen's magazine (The Bridge) and falls in love with him. Owen notices her infatuation and asks her to marry him and she accepts.

Toni is happy with her marriage until she hears two women talking about her. They say that she is common, stupid and has no soul (thus the title). She tries to learn how to make her husband love her.

Things go along like this for a while until Eva comes into the picture and pushes Toni to take a drastic measure that might ruin her life forever.

This book was okay, but I felt like the author went so out of her way to illustrate how different Owen and Toni were that she never really had them come together right. I could tell you what I mean but I don't want to spoil it if you're going to read it for yourself.
