The Beckoning Hand

by Grant Allen, The Beckoning Hand Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Beckoning Hand books, I had promised to take Mrs. Latham and Irene to see the French plays which werethen being acted by Marie Leroux's celebrated Palais Royal company. I wasn't at thetime exactly engaged to poor Irene: it has always been a comfort to me that I wasn'tengaged to her, though I knew Irene herself considered it practically equivalent toan understood engagement. We had known one another intimately from childhoodupward, for the Lathams were a sort of second cousins of ours, three timesremoved: and we had always called one another by our Christian names, and beenvery fond of one another in a simple girlish and boyish fashion as long as we couldeither of us remember. Still, I maintain, there was no definite understandingbetween us; and if Mrs. Latham thought I had been paying Irene attentions, shemust have known that a young man of two and twenty, with a decent fortune and anice estate down in Devonshire, was likely to look about him for a while before hethought of settling down and marrying quietly.

Enjoy this classic work. These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside: For a second or so, as I looked, her eyes met mine with a defiant inquiry, and I was conscious that moment of some strange and weird fascination in her glance that seemed to draw me irresistibly towards her, at the same time that I hardly dared to fix my gaze steadily upon the piercing eyes that looked through and through me with their keen penetration. ...I had forgotten now all about my distrust of her: I had forgotten all about Irene and what I wished to say to her: I was conscious only of Cesarines great dark eyes, looking through and through me with their piercing glance, and Cesarines figure, tall and stately, but very voluptuous, standing close beside me, and heaving regularly as we looked at the orchids. ...She softened and melted immensely on nearer acquaintance; the Faustina air faded slowly away, when one saw her in her own home among her own occupations; and I came to look on her as a beautiful, simple, innocent girl, delighted with all our country pleasures, fond of a breezy canter on the slopes of Dartmoor, and taking an affectionate interest in the ducks and chickens, which I could hardly ever have conceived even as possible when I first saw her in Seymour Crescent. ...The very first day we arrived at Port-au-Prince, Cesarine said to me, with more shyness than I had ever yet seen her exhibit, If you wouldnt mind it, Harry, I should like to go at once, this morning?and see my grandmother. ...I dont know what devil prompted me, for I seldom spoke to him, even when we were told off on duty together; but I said at last, after a moments pause, If you are engaged to be married, as I suppose you are from what you say, I wonder you could bear to come away on such a long business as this, when you couldnt get a word or a letter from the lady youre engaged to for a whole winter.
