Excerpt from One Life, One Love: A Novel

"Wife," cried Robert Hatrell, coming into the sunny morning-room where his wife and her daughter were sitting, the little girl in the broad recessed window, with her tutor, puzzling over her first French verb, while in front of the window a bed of pink tulips were waving and nodding their rosy cups in the soft April wind. "Wife, can you guess what good news I have brought you?"

"Indeed, no, Rob, unless it is that you are going to take me for a long drive - to Burnham Beeches, or the Forest, for instance."

She was not one of the indifferent, off-hand wives, who hardly look up from their work or their book when a husband comes back from his morning walk. She was not even one of those excellent matrons whose affections are concentrated upon the nursery, for whom babies have a higher claim than the bread-winner. Clara Hatrell adored her husband, and was not ashamed to show her affection for him in those trivial ways which mark the line between love and toleration. She laid down her pen, rose from the little Davenport, and went over to meet him as ha came flushed and smiling into the sunshiny room.

"Better than that; ever so much better than that!"

"Not another diamond bracelet, I hope," she said, with a touch of petulance.

He had a passion for buying things, an amiable weakness which had been pleasant enough up to a certain point, but to which his wife objected when it passed the limits of common sense.

""Ungrateful woman!"

"You know, dear, I have more jewellery already than I care to wear."
