Werner, E: Under a Charm, Vol. I (of III)
Werner, E., pseudonym of Elisabeth Bürstenbinder (Berlin, 1838-1918, Merano), author of numerous light novels published in serial form. Her collected works appeared as Gesammelte Romane und Novellen (10 vols.) 1893-5.
At the open glass-door, which led out on to the balcony, stood a lady dressed in deep mourning. She was tall and imposing of stature, and might still pass for beautiful, although she had more than reached life's meridian. That face, with its clear regular lines, had, it is true, never possessed the charms of grace and loveliness; but, for that very reason, years had taken nothing from the cold severe beauty it still triumphantly retained. The black attire, the crape veil shading her brow, seemed to point to some heavy, and probably recent, loss; but one looked in vain for the trace of past tears in those eyes, for a touch of softness in those features so indicative of energy. If sorrow had really drawn nigh this woman, she had either not felt it very deeply, or had already overcome its pangs.
