Wilhelmina is the mistress of an estate and has a whole town full of people that depend on her and take her word as law. When Victor Macheson, a young man chock full of ideals and theories about how to make the world a better place, petitions her for the use of a barn where he can speak on these subjects, she refuses. Her people are moral, they are prosperous, they are satisfied. Why do they need to be preached to? So she argues.

But Macheson will not take rejection so easily. He hangs around the area longer than Wilhelmina wants him to; in fact, just long enough for her to develop a new kind of fascination with him. But why is she so incomprehensible, so affectionate and then so distant? And will Macheson's ideals and high thinking stand the test of such treatment by her? [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Oppenheim, E. Phillips

Author Image

E. Phillips Oppenheim, in full Edward Phillips Oppenheim (born Oct. 22, 1866, London, Eng.—died Feb. 3, 1946, St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands, U.K.), internationally popular British author of novels and short stories dealing with international espionage and intrigue.

After leaving school at age 17 to help in his father's leather business, Oppenheim wrote in his spare time. His first novel, Expiation (1887), and subsequent thrillers caught the fancy of a wealthy New York businessman who bought out the leather business at the turn of the century and made Oppenheim a high-salaried director. He was thus freed to devote the major part of his time to writing. The novels, volumes of short stories, and plays that followed, totaling more than 150, were peopled with sophisticated heroes, adventurous spies, and dashing noblemen. Among his well-known works are The Long Arm of Mannister (1910), The Moving Finger (1911), and The Great Impersonation (1920).--Encyclopaedia Britannica.
