About this title


One of the less well-known novels by William John Locke.

About the Author:

William John Locke (1863 – 1930) was a novelist and playwright. He was born in British Guiana to English parents and graduated with honours in Mathematics at Cambridge University. After leaving Cambridge, Locke became a schoolmaster. In 1893 he published a school edition of Murat, an extract from the Celebrated Crimes (Les crimes célèbres) of Alexandre Dumas père. From 1897 to 1907 he was secretary of the Royal Institute of British Architects and lived in London. He published his first novel, At the Gate of Samaria, but he did not achieve success for another decade, with The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne (1905) and The Beloved Vagabond (1906). On 19 May 1911, Locke married Aimee Maxwell Close (née Heath), the divorced wife of Percy Hamilton Close, in Chelsea in London. The wedding was attended by Alice Baines and James Douglas. Five times Locke's books made the list of best-selling novels in the United States for the year. His works have been made into 24 motion pictures the most recent of which was Ladies in Lavender, filmed in 2004 and starring Dame Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Adapted to the screen by Charles Dance, it was based on Locke's 1916 short story of the same title that had been published in a collection entitled "Faraway Stories." Probably the most famous of Locke's books adapted to the screen was the 1918 Pickford Film Corporation production of Stella Maris starring Mary Pickford. In addition, four of his books were made into Broadway plays, two of which Locke wrote and were produced by Charles Frohman. Locke died of cancer at 64 rue Desbordes Valmore, Paris, France, on 15 May 1930.
