Dark Soil
Creeping Rails
Published:   1926
Publisher:The Bobbs-Merrill Company

Cristina, with “her blandly solemn way of accepting herself as something in answer to prayer” is wished upon her brother-in-law, an author. Because she is nearing twenty-five, and still unmarried, and because Roddie, the goal of Cristina’s ambitions, needs a lesson, having strayed from the straight and narrow path by flirting with the Sheppard girl, she and her frocks, her candor, and her childlike craving for affection descend upon a quiet home circle. Roddie, man-like, follows, and likewise, man-like, falls into the trap Cristina prepares for him. Eventually she gets the diamond, eventually she is married, with the provisions of course, that she is to keep all her old freedom. Roddie is worried, but he shouldn’t be: it isn’t man who can, or is going to tame Cristina, it’s life, and she isn’t going to have any vote in the matter.—The Edwardsville Intelligencer, June 11, 1930 [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur

Author Image

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.

He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.

Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).

Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
