About this title

Synopsis:

 "A cleverly told tale, full of dainty sentiment, of poetic dreaming and dramatic incident." -- The Brooklyn Eagle

"We feel inclined to throw at her (the heroine) neither stones nor laurels, but rather to congratulate the author upon a powerful story that lays a grip upon the mind and heart." -- The San Francisco Argonaut

"No wonder that Three Weeks is one of the best sellers." -- The Detroit Free Press

Paul Verdayne, wealthy English nobleman in his early twenties is caught embracing the parson's daughter. His parents decide to send him away to France and then Switzerland. In Switzerland, he sees a woman referred to only as "the Lady". The Lady is older, in her thirties. After several days of exchanging lustful glances, they actually meet. She invites him to her apartment where they share a sexual relationship for three weeks. The world has felt upon its hot lips the perfumed kisses of the beautiful heroine of Three Weeks. The brilliant flame that was her life has blazed a path into every corner of the globe. It is a world-renowned novel of consuming emotion that has made the name of its author, Elinor Glyn, the most discussed of all writers of modern fiction.

About the Author:

Elinor Glyn (1864 - 1943) was a British novelist and scriptwriter who specialized in romantic fiction that was considered scandalous for its time. Although her works are relatively tame by modern standards, she had tremendous influence on early 20th-century popular culture and perhaps on the careers of notable Hollywood stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson and Clara Bow in particular. --Wikipedia
