The Siege of the Seven Suitors By Meredith Nicholson
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Siege of the Seven Suitors by Meredith Nicholson, published in 1910. The reader with an active imagination will get the most pleasure out of this comedy of mysteries. Above everything, he should... More > not take it seriously; even the author does not seem to do that. It is an impossible story of two sisters who are to be married off by a rich but eccentric maiden aunt. She relegates the younger, Hezekiah, to the background until Cecilia is settled, and being superstitious about the number seven evolves a cheme which is the motif of the story. There is a laughable lover-trust, the pursuit of a smoke-ghost by the chimneydoctor, and, incidentally, a pretty little love story, but it is elusive, like the whole plot. Meredith Nicholson (December 9, 1866 – December 22, 1947) was a best-selling author from Indiana, United States, a politician, and a diplomat. Largely self-taught, Nicholson began a newspaper career in 1884 at the Indianapolis Sentinel.< Less

The Seven Streams Warwick Deeping By Warwick Deeping
Paperback: $9.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Seven Streams by Warwick Deeping Tristan le Sauvage left the Purple Isle upon a knightly quest - to recover his sister from The Land of Seven Streams. Two months had passed since a great ship,... More > with gleaming sails, had swooped like a falcon upon Purple Isle, and carried thence that white dove, Columbe the Fair. In the Land of Seven Streams, Tristan finds many other knightly services in the struggle between papacy and people, and again, between the broken ranks of the Christians and the Saracen hordes. The book is a charming romance, where Deeping simulates a historical realism by depicting Arthur's world not as the chivalrous court of the late Middle Ages as found in Malory (followed by Tennyson and most nineteenth-century poets), but as the more appropriately rugged tribal society of the sixth century. Yet even this seeming realism soon yields romance, for the world of Deeping's novels depicts Roman elegance more than the crude realities of Saxon invasions and Briton resistance.< Less
