    1. The copywrite date of this book was 1906 and there was a handwritten inscription on the flyleaf To Elin from Olive, Xmas 1911 Wow, this book is a hundred years old I loved the page layout and the deckle edged pages The running heads were printed in red ink and the text covered only about half of the page, outlined in a black box The content is just as old fashioned and fussy Women are either on a pedestal or victims life is melodramatic and sentimental man is noble or depraved Take for instance [...]


    2. Read again now I m surprised at all I forgot about the book A number of passages in it I wish I could remember so I could pull them up at opportune times Too bad so many years were spent in the Shadows for Evelina She should ve met the Piper years ago Mehitable is priceless Just a true bitter old maid I found her amusing Also too bad the Dr had to kill himself, but I guess he had nothing to live for any Do I sound cruel It s only fiction, so I can cast such judgement.


    3. Miss Evelina Gray, a lady in her forties, seems to have nothing left to live for Her mother has died and she has no money left, so she moves back to her old home, which is a run down, dirty place now Wanting death, yet not taking it upon herself, Evelina recalls with pity her past yet much of it remains a mystery to us.The busybody neighbor, Miss Mehitable Smith, goes over to the house the next day, bent upon being friendly and learning who s come to live in the old house Veiled as Evelina is, [...]


    4. Twenty five years ago Miss Evalina suffered a great hurt to both body and heart, and she never recovered Now she s come back, mysteriously veiled and silent Miss Mehitable, the maidenly spinster, can t quite remember the long ago story, but Dr Anthony Dexter remembers all too well Along comes the Piper, to lure the sad woman from her sadness And here s Dr Dexter s son, who thinks his father always does the square thing The lives of these, and other characters tangle in the quiet village, and eve [...]


    5. Just found this story online of which I thoroughly enjoyed reading in one day It certainly was a very old fashioned tale of broken hearts, dreams and misery But also of coming to life, blooming and forgiveness So many elements woven into this story aside from being that of romance that of cruelty, depression, ignorance, cowardliness and misguided responsibility but also of kindness, innocence, understanding, hope and growth as well as finding one s voice Refreshing to read with the way modern wr [...]


    6. This book was not entirely what I was expecting it to be There is both happiness and unhappiness in it, but it is probably the sorrow that leaves the biggest impression, even though everything ends being basically okay There is one unforgettable and cruelly horrific scene that I could not make myself read in depth animal lovers would do well to watch out The best part of the book is young Dr Ralph and Araminta Dr Anthony Dexter is utterly cold and incomprehensible, and I didn t care to read so m [...]


    7. The scene with Laddie and the doctor and of course Piper breaks my heart I cry every time i try to read it aloud and i try to do that pretty often because i want to share it with everyone i love the line about paraphrasing i thought that if i was worthy of a dog s love I might someday be worthy of a woman s it is beautiful.


    8. This book is the classic romance from the late 1800s early 1900s Myrtle Reed whose writing I first was introduced to when my grandmother gave me a first edition Weaver of Dreams was a popular author at the turn of the 20th century Full of thwarted love, humorously drawn characters and love s perfect fulfillment at the end, her books are a good easy read.


    9. This was both obnoxious and hilarious It s not a page turner, but there is much quiet humor and I d still like to finish it, but it was on an mp3 player I don t have any.


    10. I was very drawn in by this book and it is interesting I wasn t fully satisfied with it as a whole Definitely some interesting characters, good and bad.





    11. I love these old fashioned books with their expectations and values Not as life was then but rather as people wished life would be as the worm turned and the bad were punished Humor and pathos.



    12. 4 A good wholesome book, if a little slow on action But that s how the good old books are wisdom, less action.
