|Title:||Mrs. Pendleton's Four-in-hand|
|Publisher:||The Macmillan Company|
This is a most amusing little story of what we may call the “genteel farce” kind. Mrs. Pendleton, who has been a pronounced flirt in her married life, becomes a widow at twenty-four, and receives simultaneous offers of marriage from four admirers. It must, she thinks, be a practical joke; to avenge the insult she engages herself to the four.

Author Bio for Atherton, Gertrude Franklin Horn
Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was a prominent and prolific American author. Many of her novels are set in her home state, California. Her best-seller Black Oxen (1923) was made into a silent movie of the same name. In addition to novels, she wrote short stories, essays, and articles for magazines and newspapers on such issues as feminism, politics, and war. She was strong-willed, independent-minded, and sometimes controversial.--Wikipedia.
