By Henryk Sienkiewicz
Little, Brown & Co., 1897
The story of a love triangle, in which a Polish nobleman and his Muslim friend both fall in love with a beautiful young woman who was an orphan.
Sienkiewicz was a Polish author, best known for his book QUO VADIS, an historical novel of Jesus, and a classic which was a huge bestseller, made into a successful film, and remains in print, now largely to the homeschool and Christian fiction markets.
This book has several long stories, or short novellas:
THE OLD SERVANT
LET US FOLLOW HIM
BE THOU BLESSED
AT THE SOURCE
THE ORGANIST OF PONIKLA
LUX IN TENEBRIS LUCET
ON THE BRIGHT SHORE
THAT THIRD WOMAN
The author won the Nobel Prize in 1905 for lifetime achievement as an epic writer.
In addition to this being a great book to read, it is also beautiful to behold! Published at the end of the 19th century, it is still in fantastic condition in the 21st century!
