Excerpt

heerful.

The other little girl was prettier, but of a more stubborn type; more passionate, less organised, and infinitely more assertive. Black- haired, black-eyed, swarthy, large-mouthed, snub-nosed; the very type and essence of unrestrained, impulsive, emotional, sensual nature. A seeing eye would have noted inevitable danger for the early years of her womanhood. She seemed amazed by the self-abnegation implied by her companion's statement; after a pause she replied:

'I wouldn't! I'd rather be up at the top of everything and give orders to the angels if I chose. I can't think, Marjorie, why you'd rather take orders than give them.'

'That's just it, Susan. I don't want to give orders; I'd rather obey them. It must be very terrible to have to think of things so much, that you want everything done your own way. And besides, I shouldn't like to have to be just!'

Great story full of suspense. Will the man get the girl or will her crazy ideas on equality interfere with convention and force her into the hands of another?
Big strong man, beautiful wilful girl, this story has adventure, despair and suspense woven into a beautifully written piece of work.

* The Man:?
o To a little girl this kindly, big, strong ship passenger, is The Man.
o To the woman he loves, he is just another man, almost a brother.
o To the others around him, he is That Man. Brave, honest, kindly, but sad and pitiful.
* Ah, but time and events change many things, all but The Man

Tis is listed as Gothic Horror. I disagree. This is a traditional story of love misunderstood, lost and found again. There is one occasion early on in a crypt, but it only sets the true nature of the two male characters and introduces a little girl to the reality of death.
