-- Three Loves by A. J. Cronin
Her heart leaped and abruptly she turned as the door swung open and Lennox entered. His face, set already to an unusual severity -- it was not the expression with which he entered her house -- soured further at the sight of her; pushing back his hat from his brow, he immediately exclaimed: "You've turned up!"
This is the first A. J. Cronin novel I have read and I feel like I have discovered a lost continent of books available for me to explore.
Cronin was a prolific mid-century author who wrote more than 20 novels, many which were made into movies or television shows.
Judging from this book,it is easy to see why Cronin was so popular. The book is fairly long -- over 550 pages -- but moves right along with plenty of action, plot, and conflict among the characters. It is an easy pick for the Chunkster Challenge.
Three Loves is his second novel, but the earliest-published of the set I have. I found this matching set at a library book store. I am hoping that there are other volumes that match this edition. But whether I can find matching editions or not, I plan to read many more of Cronin's novels.
But what is really teasing me today is this blog question. Please help!
