Overview

THE TOP OF THE WORLD.... IS SET IN SOUTH AFRICA. 324 PAGES IN PRINT! AN INTERESTING READ!
YOU WILL READ OF SYLVIA, THE HEROINE, WHO HAS A REFRESHING TAKE-CHARGE ATTITUDE AND WILL NOT SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF HER FATHER, HER STEP-MOTHER OR HER HUSBAND!

It's a topsy-turvy world when one can be at the top of the world in South Africa and that's the central theme of Ethel M. Dell's romance The book appears to be a simple romance (girl pines over boy and finally gets boy). It is anything but a simple romance (at least of the sort that were popular at the turn of the last century). It could be described as a proto-bodice ripper. The bodice ripper is mostly an invention of the 1970s but this romance has all the trappings of one!

The novel dances a fine line along a number of more conventional plot lines but whenever the heroine (Sylvia) decides to do the obvious thing, she does something completely unexpected. Does she stay at home to pine over her lost love? No! She goes after him. Does she go home when she can't find her lost love? No. She takes a marriage of convenience. Does she honor and obey her new husband? Decidedly no!

Curious to see how much an aberration The Top of the World is for this era of book for it was published in 1920!
