Excerpt from Hearts and the HighwayThis story is exactly what it purports to be, a romance, as the reader who cares to follow the ...Highway With the Hero and Heroine whose ad ventures thereon are hereafter set forth will see. It makes no pretence at being an historical novel, and yet, perhaps, it is only fair to the Manes of Lady Grizel Ogilby to point out that she herself once played a dashing role, somewhat like that attributed to Lady Katharine Clanranald, in a similar emergency in Scottish history and at a similar crisis in the family fortunes. I am just a little tired, for the nonce, of the problem story, and I have turned to this with a keen relish in which I humbly trust the reader Will share. Va riety is the life of literature: if I confined myself to one kind of books, or to one kind of sermons, I should be a dead author and a dead preacher as well.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Poniard's Hilt, or Karadeucq and Ronan: A Tale of Bagauders and VagresThe invasion of Gaul by Clovis introduced f...eudalism in France, which is equivalent to saying in Europe, France being the teeming womb of the great historic events of that epoch. It goes without saying that so vast a social system as that of feu dalism could not be perfected in a day, or even during one reign. Indeed, generations passed, and it was not until the Age of Charlemagne that feudalism can be said to have taken some measure of shape and form. Between the Ages of Clovis and Charlemagne a period of turbulence ensued altogether peculiar to the combined circumstances that feudalism was forced to struggle with two foes - one internal, the disintegrating forces that ever accompany a new movement; the other external, the stubborn and inspiring resistance, on the part of the native masses, to the conqueror from the wilds of Germania. Histor ians, with customary levity, have neglected to reproduce this interesting epoch in the annals Of that social structure that is mother to the social structure now prevalent. The task was undertaken and successfully accomplished by Eugene Sue in this boisterous historic novel entitled The Poniard's Hilt; or, Karadeucq and Roman, the sixth of his majestic series of his toric novels, The Mysteries of the People; or, History of a Pro ls tarian Family Across the A yes. The leading characters are all historic. It required the genius, the learning, the poetry, the tact, withal the daring of 8. Sue to weave these characters into a fascinating tale and draw a picture as vivid as the quartos, from which the facts are gathered, are musty with old age.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Honorable Peter Stirling and What People Thought of Him Peter was not good looking. He was not even, in a sense, ...attractive. In spite of his taking work so hardly and life so seriously, he was entirely too stout. This gave a heaviness to his face that neutralized his really pleasant brown eyes and thick brown hair, which were his best features. Manly the face was, but, except when speaking in unconscious moments, dull and unstriking. A fellow three inches shorter, and two-thirds his weight would have been called tall. Big was the favorite adjective used in describing Peter, and big he was. Had he gone through college ten years later, he might have won un stinted fame and admiration as the full-back on the team, or stroke on the crew. In his time, athletics were but just obtaining, and were not yet approved of either by faculties or families. Shakespeare speaks of a tide in the affairs of men. Had Peter been born ten years later the probabilities are that his name would have beeh in all the papers, that he would have weighed fifty p nuds less, have been cheered by thousands, have beer he idol Of his class, have been a hero, have married the first girl he loved (for heroes, curiously, either marry or die, but never remain bachelors) and would have but as this is a tale of fact, we must not give rein to imagination. To come back to realism, Peter was a hero to nobody but his mother. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Aaron's RodThere was a large, brilliant evening star in the early twi light, and underfoot the earth was half frozen.... It was Christ mas Eve. Also the War was over, and there was a sense of relief that was almost a new menace. A man felt the violence of the nightmare released now into the general air. Also there had been another wrangle among the men on the pit bank that evening.Aaron Sisson was the last man on the little black railway line climbing the hill home from work. He was late because he had attended a meeting of the men on the bank. He was secretary to the Miners Union for his colliery, and had heard a good deal of silly wrangling that left him nettled.He strode over a stile, crossed two fields, strode another stile, and was in the long road of colliers' dwellings. Just across was his own house: he had built it himself. He went through the little gate, up past the side of the house to the back. There he hung a moment, glancing down the dark, wintry garden.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
