Excerpt from A Great Mystery Solved: Being a Continuation of and Conclusion to the Mystery of Edwin Drood, (Ran Unfinished Won or Charles Dickens)

Canon, whose tiny, timid mother kept house for him there, and was as dainty as a little china shepherdess, a figure which she oddly suggested. Very proud was she of her seventh and only surviving son, and he, in his stalwart manhood, no less so of his frail little ma. It takes all sorts to make a world, and in the small one of the Cathedral and its precincts Durdles, the drunken stonemason, was fairly conspicuous, with his dinner bundled into a handkerchief and carried about all day and every day. A satellite of his was Deputy, a hideous small lad employed at a common lodging house, whom he had hired to pelt him home with stones in case he was out too late in his cups, the bargain being that first he was to have a widdy widdy warning in the form of some doggerel verse. Durdles always spoke of himself in the third person, and his hobby was to go about tapping tombs and walls with his hammer, the answering sound telling him many things dulled to less sensitive ears. Even in sleepy Cloisterham events out of the common would happen occasionally, such as the arrival from Ceylon of Neville and Helena Landless, brother and sister, orphaned and of neglected up-bringing, so that the girl was to go to Miss Twinkle ton and the youth to Mr. Crisparkle, for the bettering of their education. Both were dark and remarkably handsome, and both had been hurt to the soul by the harsh treatment of a conscienceless step-father. Edwin and Neville met, and a mutual dislike was not long in manifesting itself. The newcomer resented Drood's cavalier treatment of Rosa, with whom he himself was at sight in. Love. At a meeting brought about by John Jasper, with the avowed idea of a recon ciliation, high words passed between the young fellows.

Product Description:

Excerpt from A Great Mystery Solved: Being a Continuation of and Conclusion to the Mystery of Edwin Drood, (Ran Unfinished Won or Charles Dickens)

The fate of Edwin Drood, the last of Charles Dickens' creations, has exercised the minds of not a few literary men of eminence. The best of them could but guess and which has gone nearest will never be known. They were content to suggest the answer without troubling to work it out in detail as a continuation and finish of the story. This more difficult task was undertaken by Gillan Vase, whose luxuriant imagination led her not only to follow up the destinies of the characters which we owe in their inception to Dickens, but also to create several others.
