This is a wise and fabulous story about love, passion and intrigue. Ella Wheeler Wilcox was at the height of her literary career. She still makes the same impression of a strong woman as she did a hundred years ago. Every page of her books still amazes readers. If you like stories in the style of Jane Austen, then you will definitely enjoy reading ‘Three women’!
In this book, Wilcox tells about a rich young man named Maurice Somerville, who comes to visit an old college friend, Roger Reese where he lives with his sister Ruth. Maurice falls in love, not with his friend’s sister Ruth, but with Mabel Lee, a neighbor. The things get more complicated with the fact that Roger is also in love with Mabel. Thus begins the incredible love story, full of difficulties, jealousy and passion.
