In a debut romance as passionate and sweeping as the British Empire, Meredith Duran paints a powerful picture of an aristocrat torn between two worlds, an heiress who dares to risk everything...and the love born in fire and darkness that nearly destroys them. From exotic sandstone palaces... Sick of tragedy, done with rebellion, Emmaline Martin vows to settle quietly into British Indian society. But when the pillars of privilege topple, her fiancé's betrayal leaves Emma no choice. She must turn for help to the one man whom she should not trust, but cannot resist: Julian Sinclair, the dangerous and dazzling heir to the Duke of Auburn. To the marble halls of London... In London, they toast Sinclair with champagne. In India, they call him a traitor. Cynical and impatient with both worlds, Julian has never imagined that the place he might belong is in the embrace of a woman with a reluctant laugh and haunted eyes. But in a time of terrible darkness, he and Emma will discover that love itself can be perilous -- and that a single decision can alter one's life forever. Destiny follows wherever you run. A lifetime of grief later, in a cold London spring, Emma and Julian must finally confront the truth: no matter how hard one tries to deny it, some pasts cannot be disowned...and some passions never die.

Queenie Dorothy Leavis was one of the best critics of the novel. Her primary interest was in the English novel in its greatest period the nineteenth-century, but she had wide interests and wrote on the American novel as well; and her anthropological view of literature caused her to ask how the novel rose and why it flourished and that occasioned her to look at European literatures. Her published essays appeared as articles or reviews of remarkable trenchancy in Scrutiny, or as lectures or introductions to editions of classic novels. They have been much read but she never collected them in her lifetime. They are here reprinted in three volumes. The whole is prefaced by her own 'A Glance Backward, 1965' concerning her life and work and there is an introduction by the editor, Professor G. Singh.

In a world where the will of man plays such a massive role in the building of destinies, The Saving of a Wreckless Freak is an eye opener on the need and vantage of submission to divine will. At various points, the personal whims and lusts of Juwon do not only clash with the will of God in His life; they work against His very purpose. As a child of destiny, he starts in life, latching on to the pedestal of older ones. But he chooses to thread on the paths that are at variance with the purpose of God in his life. Though by parental vision, he is supposed to prove that God is above all, he is carried away by the inordinate lusts and perverse values that he grew to meet in society. His tragic travails come in triples. Myasthenia Gravis only accentuates the divine call that he defied all along. The divine call and a glorious advent in the prophetic bring him back to the platform of divine agenda, which he loathed much earlier. The prodigal lost all but the glory that awaited him back home with his father. Juwon writes as a witness to the miraculous grace of Christ.
