Book Excerpt

rcle, and that even her own kind-hearted, long-known friend, Emma Thomycroft, was not the most intellectual woman in the world,--showed great good nature on the part of Major Harper.

Perhaps the most silent person at table was the younger brother, whose Christian name Agatha did not know. However, hearing the Major call him once or twice by an odd-sounding word, something like "Beynell" or "Ennell," she had the curiosity to inquire.

He met her eye, and answered for himself, showing he had been listening to her all the time. "I am called Nathanael--it is an old family name--Nathanael Locke Harper."

It is a wonderful read as the Author has used Purbeck as her inspiration for one of the settings for this book with Wareham being know as Kingcoombe and the well known clay Merchant William Joseph Pike as Marmaduke Dugdale. In real life the Dugdales lived opposite the Pikes and one of the Pike family was Marmaduke Christian Pike. It was good to read of Corfe Castle being a place for a picnic before the NT started charging for access.
