A Red Sister : A Story of Three Days and Three Months
Lady Joan grew up in a modest household in a poor community. When she and her childhood friend, Elliot, fell in love as they grew older, Joan promised to wait for him, planning on marrying when Elliot rose to a higher position in society. However, as the wait grew longer, Joan became impatient. When the son of a wealthy coal owner began to express interest in her, Joan hardly hesitated to marry rich and leave her hometown. Now, years later, Lady Joan is reminded of her choice when her old lover, Elliot, who is now a pastor, gets stationed at the church close to Joan's estate. While Joan reconsiders her past choice of money over love, she is also concerned with the future when she learns that her son, Herrick, has fallen in love with a girl named Lois, threatening the marriage arrangement Joan and her husband were planning for him. Torn between the past and future, Joan must make peace with the decision she made as a young woman while attempting to control her son's love life. Separated into three volumes, Catherine Louisa Pirkis' Red Sister: A Story of Three Days and Three Months follows the drama of two generations facing similar issues of love and life.
