Webster, Jean: The Four-Pools Mystery. v1. 30 May 07
This has an intersting title, and I thought it might be a good mystery. In doing some research, I learned that the author - Jean Webster - was very attuned to the social conditions of her era. (1876-1916). Her most famous novel is Daddy Long-Legs.
Webster is a writer who's studied in academia, but this mystery may be only a minor work, compared to the bestselling Long-Legs. Her main concern, I feel, was the socio-economic conditions of Place.
"Alice's mother was niece to Mark Twain, and her father was Twain's business manager and subsequently publisher of many of his books through the Charles L. Webster Publishing, founded in 1884."
I hope you enjoy it -- and tell us what this is about!
I should stress that I haven't read this.
