Tags:Canadiana, fiction

Dr. David Tascott, a “foreigner,” dominates More Than Bread. But it is Clare Eltonhead, gallant, tender, unreasonable, exasperating and maddeningly desirable who shocks and disturbs her own people. The Western Shore of southern Maryland is rich soil which, strange as it may seem, has never before been turned by literary ploughshare. Dr. Tascott comes to King’s Green to open his first office; he is a good doctor, physically unimpressive but quiet, lovable and eminently reliable. Clare Eltonhead belongs to the impoverished gentry and has spent several years in Baltimore with a wealthy aunt. On her return to her old home she quickly justifies the gossips’ suspicions of the ways of the outside world by her affair with Lance Corder. These three characters, Dr. Tascott, Clare and Lance Corder, play their devastating roles against the background of many native characters as the chorus. Hulbert Footner knows the Western Shore of Maryland thoroughly.—Intro. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
