The Conflict

Four years at Wellesley; two years about equally divided among Paris, Dresden and Florence. And now Jane Hastings was at home again. At home in the unchanged housespacious, old-fashionedlooking down from its steeply sloping lawns and terraced gardens upon the sooty, smoky activities of Remsen City, looking out upon a charming panorama of hills and valleys in the heart of South Central Indiana.

She gazed out over the fields and woods. Yes, there must be something for her besides merely marrying and breedingjust as much for her as for a man. But what?

She glanced down at her skirts with an angry sense of enforced masquerade. And then she laughedfor she had a keen sense of humor that always came to her rescue when she was in danger of taking herself too seriously. ......Buy Now (To Read More)
