Description:

Against his better judgement, an eligible young man takes the advice of his worldly father and marries on face value, judging womankind much as he would assess a good race horse: breed, health, stance, how she makes your blood race—but intellect is not considered.

So what happens when one is unhappily shackled in the marriage of his own forging when the “right one” comes along? Well, even if nothing untoward happens, tongues will wag and reputations will be lost. Can anyone find happiness before its too late?—Dorcas at Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Deeping, Warwick (George)

Author Image

He was one of the best selling authors of the 1920s and 1930s, with seven of his novels making the best-seller list. Deeping was a prolific writer of short stories, which appeared in such British magazines as Cassell's, The Story-Teller, and The Strand. He also published fiction in several US magazines, including the Saturday Evening Post and Adventure. All of the short stories and serialized novels in U.S. magazines were reprints works previously published in Britain. Well over 200 of his original short stories and essays that appeared in various British fiction magazines were never seen in book form. Those works are now available in the multi-volume "Lost Stories" collection.

His early work is dominated by historical romances. His later novels more usually dealt with modern life, and were critical of many tendencies of twentieth-century civilisation. His standpoint was generally that of a passionate individualism, distrustful both of ruling elites and of the lower classes, who were often presented as a threat to his embattled middle-class protagonists. His most celebrated hero is Captain Sorrell M.C., the ex-officer who after the War is reduced to a menial occupation in which he is bullied by those of a lower social class and less education. Deeping's novels often deal with controversial issues.--Wikipedia.
