Fiction - about young woman named Maude - Late 19th/early 20th century
Join LibraryThing to post.
You would think it would be easy to find this book, as I'm almost positive the title was "Maud." I read it in the early 1970's. It's a novel about a young woman who grew up late 1890's or early 1900's (can't remember if it was set in the Northeastern part of the US or Britain). She was an only child, wealthy, a debutante who purchased designer custom-made Worth gowns for coming out balls, etc. She had several romantic experiences but never married. She lived until her death in the same house she grew up in, but which had become dilapidated. Just typing this makes this book sound so depressing, but it's actually a great novel with wonderful experiences for the main character. There's a recent Kindle e-book titled "Maude" which I've already read (btw - it's a great book) but it's not the one I'm looking for.
This reminds me a lot of a wonderful diary of a young woman in the 1880s-90s who lived in Cairo, Illinois, daughter of a prominent citizen. She went to art school, wrote novels, and had some quiet but dramatic events in her love life--but she eventually marries a young doctor and moves to NYC. I doubt it's your book, but if you should run across it you might enjoy it. Maud
Hi, I am looking for a book which I had read really long time back but dont recollect the name.
I dont exactly recollect the plot, but all I remember is that the heroine had red hair and the hero was a prince/duke and he had a son/daughter.
I distinctly recollect that both of them were married and both their spouses died together or were murdered plus they were having an affair as well
The hero and heroine try to find out their killer. Actually put together like this, the story sounds weird, but i don't exactly recollect entire plot :-)
Can someone help with name of the book please.
>2 Marissa_Doyle: That sounds interesting--thanks for mentioning it. Will be keeping an eye out for it.
>3 poornima9: You'd probably have a far better chance of getting replies if you post your request in its own thread. Be sure to use a descriptive title for it rather than something vague like 'Looking for a book'. Good luck.
