The 35-year-old widowed and fledgling author returns home to West Virginia, where she becomes the newest conquest of the town rake and alcoholic, irresistible Charley Bland. Both are prodigals and sinners: she in having fled the South to live the bohemian life in Paris; Charley thoroughly in thrall to his ruthless, implacably selfish mother.
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded sewn-in pages and a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
