Overview

The Little Lady of the Big House (1915) is a novel by American writer Jack London.
The story concerns a love triangle. The protagonist, Dick Forrest, is a rancher with a poetic streak (his "acorn song" recalls London's play, "The Acorn Planters."). His wife, Paula, is a vivacious, athletic, and sexually self-aware woman (in one scene, she rides a stallion into a "swimming tank," emerging in "a white silken slip of a bathing suit that molded to her form like a marble-carven veiling of drapery.") Paula, like Charmian, is subject to insomnia and is unable to bear children. Based on a reading of Charmian's diary, Stasz identifies the third vertex of the triangle, Evan Graham, with two real-life men named Laurie Smith andAllan Dunn.

"Lightningstar, you came. Let me die in peace." Her breathes were shallow.

This is NOT the Jack London of the White Fang/Call of the Wild. The characters are bigger than life, smart, crisp and funny at times. But when Forrest can't "fix" his marriage, this perfect world starts to unravel. Rennasance man Forrest and his wife Paula live in a sprawling compound in California with enough funds to insure the good life. But can money buy happiness? What is wealth and what can challenge it? And, once its changed, can it change back? Will his intellect save his life? Will love save it? Well worth struggling through the OCR digitizing. A satisfying book
