Overview

MARJORY walked pensively along the hall. In the cool shadows made by the palms on the window ledge, her face wore the expression of thoughtful melancholy expected on the faces of the devotees who pace in cloistered gloom.

I could tell this was an older book because of all the wording and lettering. I liked it. It was a love story that fought the families not wanting the relationship. Through the ups and downs they proved it would work.
