This 1927 Pulitzer Prize winner is a richly crafted character study of an old New England family at the end of its influence and name-carrying tradition.

Languishing in the home is frail Jack Pentland, the fifteen year-old heir to the family name and fortune. Isolated in a far wing upstairs is "her" the nameless and addled wife of old John Pentland, the reigning monarch of the family. She alone is privey to a family secret which if known would uproot the Pentland family tree. Other characters are interwoven into this tale of anguish and of loves both lost and found. A real treat for the serious reader of American literature. --Jerry Kelley at Amazon.com
