The Romance of a Shop

Category: Author:novel 

There stood on Campden Hill a large, dun-coloured house, enclosed by a walled-in garden of several acres in extent. It belonged to no particular order of architecture, and was more suggestive of comfort than of splendour, with its great windows, and rambling, nondescript proportions. On one side, built out from the house itself, was a ...

The Land of Joy

Category: Author:novel 

John North unlocked the door and threw it open. The study was in semi-darkness and filled with the accumulated heat and fust of the summer.

The Choice of Life

Category: Author:novel 

Here in the garden, close to the quiet house, I sit thinking of that strange meeting in the village. A blackbird at regular intervals sings the same refrain, which is taken up by others in the distance.

The last thing that an explorer arrives at is a complete map that will cover the whole ground he has travelled, but for those who come after him and would profit by and extend his knowledge his map is the first thing with which they will begin.
