the demagogue and lady phayre

Book cover
One might think this was a variation, in title, at least, of the old Beauty and the Beast story. But Daniel Goddard is no ill-favored man, although, as Mr. Locke describes her, Lady Phayre is the most fascinating of her sex, capricious, perhaps, emotional, but those are the natural feminine traits. Mr. Locke writes a strong and powerful story, and has the ability to let fly his arrows so that they all hit the mark. Perhaps the moral of it is, that birds of a feather should mate together.This story line has it all...English politics mixed with the strict rules of London society, love and romance.This is a short romance of great strength and singular for its pathos and is deserving of a conspicuous place in the fiction of today.**summary from New York Times Book Review, Dec. 22, 1895Be sure to look for other novels from William J. Locke.
