I know Fanny Hurst is cheesy, but I still enjoy her novels occasionally...especially when they have been made into a film. HATED the way this woman sacrificed her life to a married man and was faithful to him even when he didn't take care of her. HATED it...but I suppose it was meant as some kind of warning. ( )
