The Mating of Lydia

Book cover
The open door revealed a room of singular architectural charm; an oval room panelled in dark oak, with a stucco ceiling, in free Italianate design. But within its stately and harmonious walls a single oil lamp, of the cheapest and commonest pattern, emitting a strong smell of paraffin, threw its light upon furniture, quite new, that most seaside lodgings would have disdained; viz., a cheap carpet of a sickly brown, leaving edges of bare boards between itself and the wainscot;
A 1913 novel by Mary Augusta Ward, a prolific, successful British novelist who wrote under her married name as Mrs Humphry Ward. She wrote 25 novels, concerned largely with religious, political, and social issues.
