"A young country lawyer is driven by poverty to accept an assemblyman's salary from the hands of a "boss," and when his conscience forces him to vote against a bad bill he is thrown out of office. ..." -- google books description. Theodore Bevan, the Fowler, the type of evil, the spirit of pessimism; Brian Uppingham, the type of good, the spirit of optimism; and Nora Penhurst, the prey of the Fowler, and the beloved of Brian -these are the three significant characters of the book, and the story is the story of Nora's struggles under these two influences. Beatrice Harraden (1864-1936) was a British writer and suffragette. She traveled extensively in Europe and the United States and in 1893 found fame with her debut novel, Ships That Pass in the Night, a love story set in a tuberculosis sanatorium. It was a best-seller, but she failed to achieve similar success with subsequent books which included novels, short stories and books for children.
