Overview

The Wiles of Womankind
Archibald Rushford, tall, lean, the embodiment of energy, stood at the window, hands in pockets, and stared disgustedly out at the dreary vista of sand-dunes and bathing-machines, closed in the distance by a stretch of gray sea mounting toward a horizon scarcely discernible through the drifting mist which hung above the water.
"Though why you wanted to come here at all," he continued, presumably addressing two young ...

Overview

The Wiles of Womankind
Archibald Rushford, tall, lean, the embodiment of energy, stood at the window, hands in pockets, and stared disgustedly out at the dreary vista of sand-dunes and bathing-machines, closed in the distance by a stretch of gray sea mounting toward a horizon scarcely discernible through the drifting mist which hung above the water.
"Though why you wanted to come here at all," he continued, presumably addressing two young ladies in the room behind him, "or why you want to stay, now you are here, passes my comprehension. One might as well be buried alive, and be done with it. The sensations, I should imagine, are about the same."
"Oh, come, dad!" protested one of the girls, laughing, "you know it isn't so bad as that! There's plenty of life-not just at this hour of the morning, perhaps,"-with a fleeting glance at the empty landscape,-"but the hour is unfashionable."
"As everything seasonable and sensible seems to be here," put in her father, grimly.

    Cute, charming, short, slightly melodramatic period piece.

    As the original review says: "Two American girls, sojourning with their father at a little Dutch watering place, unintentionally become involved in a diplomatic intrigue which threatens the peace of Europe. A situation, humorous at first, rapidly becomes dramatic, and moves on to a breathless climax. There is also an absorbing, moving love story, in which Cupid, with the aid of American good looks, rules the destinies of England and Germany, and decides the question of the succession to the small but pivotal duchy of Schloscheld-Markheim".

    Good read.

    This book is the same as the one by this name with direct link technology. This one was free. It is a good romance of about 900 pages. It it written in a literary style like poetry sometimes. There is no kissing or anything but it will keep you guessing . It is detective work and politics. I enjoyed it but would have liked more romance. I think it is for people who appreciate poetry type talk.
