9781440097782: The Devil's Garden (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Devil's Garden

As always in this early hour of the day, the postmaster thought of his own importance. The village seemed still half asleep - blinds down wherever he looked - lazy, money-greedy tradesmen not yet alive to their selfish enterprises - only the poor laborers of the soil already at work; and nevertheless here was he, William Dale, up and about, carrying on the continuous business of the state.

But how long would he be permitted to feel like this? Could, it be possible that the end of his importance was near at hand?

About the Author:

William Babington Maxwell (1866–1938) was a British novelist. He was a son of novelist Mary Elizabeth Braddon. Though nearly 50 years old at the outbreak of the First World War, he was accepted as a lieutenant in the Royal Fusiliers and served in France until 1917. He wrote The Last Man In, a drama, produced 14 March 1910, at the Royalty Theatre, Glasgow, by the Scottish Repertory Company; and, with George Paston (i. e., Emily Morse Symonds), a farce, The Naked Truth, which was first played at Wyndham's Theatre, London, in April, 1910, and in which Charles Hawtrey played Bernard Darrell.
