Author: Florence Barclay
Jane Champion is a talented, good-natured and independent woman, but she’s very aware that she’s no beauty. In fact, she’s too tall, very plain, and expects she’ll spend her life as a spinster. Garth Dalmain is a painter who is vibrant, wealthy, extraordinarily handsome, and well known as a lover of great beauty.
When Garth hears Jane sing the popular song, The Rosary, at a performance, he sees the great beauty of her soul and is immediately smitten. He wants to marry Jane, and declares his undying love for her. But certain that such an incredible man could never be happy spending the rest of his life with a plain-looking woman, Jane turns him down. Broken-hearted, the two part ways, until a tragedy reunites them.
