Grace Parsloe was certainly beautiful but at the moment; it was the beauty of an angry serpent. Grace has fallen ill and it was her employers who’d decided a change of climate in southern California would help her recovery. Grace couldn’t help knowing she was pretty, so it was a novelty when she met civil engineer Harvey Freeman on the journey and found him quite indifferent. Rather than monopolise his masculine admiration, Grace had to content herself speculating what sort of an experience Mr. Freeman must have had, to panoply him against her magic Harvey Freeman was off to investigate subterranean matter for historical research when fate introduced him to Grace on his voyage from New York City. Harvey was never deficient in audacity, but standing in the dark radiance of Grace’s eyes, he found himself adapting a cool exterior to hide his dwindling self-assurance, The Golden Fleece is a tale of two stories. It is a romance but entwined in a myth with super-natural elements, mystery and ancestoral spells. The atmosphere changes from light-hearted to evil, leading readers to ponder whether a person can ever escape their past or their divined future? About the Author Author Julian Hawthorne initially earned his living as a dissatisfied hydrographic engineer, but turned instead to newspaper writing and became a literary critic before his writing career. In 1912, he served a year in a federal penitentiary over a stock scandal and afterward relocated to California, where this novel is set. His career as a writer was prolific, spanning 60 years until his death in California in 1934.
