Reseña del editor
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

I think this is indeed my favorite romance because I reread the ending of the book (where the romance culminates) three times. I've never done that before. Usually I wait several years before rereading a book so that the memory is not too fresh, and I might read a few sentences of a book before going on because I like them so well--but I never did this before! I just couldn't get enough of it!
The hero of this book, Winthrop, made me think of the Lord Jesus, and the relationship he had with his little sister made me think of myself with the Lord and made me want more of that kind of relationship. She told someone that she always obeyed her big brother and was asked, "What kind of power does he have over you?" She answered, "Why, it's not power! It's...it's...goodness." I realized that it is God's goodness that makes us want to obey Him, because He doesn't use His power against our free will.
The heroine of the story, and the subject of the romance, was easy to identify with and to love and admire in spite of her pride and selfishness, and it was very interesting to see her spiritual struggle. The historical setting was fascinating--the way people ate, and dressed, and lived, and thought in those days in the U.S. Surprising to me how the class system of England was replicated to a great extent in the U.S. then. The firm limits on women's independence were clearly shown. The absolute dependence of the poor on the generosity of the rich was likewise clearly shown.
A young black girl, Clam, is one of the most memorable, most real characters I have ever encountered in fiction. Fell in love with her. Of course, Susan Warner always supplies one or two characters to get angry at as well. No real villain here but a few people to rather dislike, which is always fun.
As I said in the title, this hero is my favorite hero. I love certain male characters in Trollope's books and in George MacDonald's and in Edward Payson Roe's and in other novels by Susan Warner--but none as much as Winthrop. Maybe some readers will agree with me, maybe not. It would be interesting to know. But I have no friend who likes to read these types of books so probably will never know--until perhaps Heaven.
