Lucy Carmichael (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Lucy Carmichael ON A fine evening in September Melissa Hallam sat in Kensington Gardens with a young man to whom She had been engaged for three days. They had begun to think of the future and she was trying to explain her reasons for keeping the engage ment a secret as long as possible. If my mother knows of it first, she said, my father will be wounded to the quick. John Beauclerc had only just learnt that he was to have a father-in-law. He had always supposed that Mr. Hallam, whose name was never mentioned, must be dead. But it appeared that he had merely left his family and was living by himself in a hotel at Budleigh Salterton.
