THE MOON THROUGH GLASS by Coningsby Dawson


Email this review


A long drawn out, pretentious much ado about nothing. The involved love story of Sally and Sir Peter, who cannot marry her but will not tell her why. He aids her to escape from Belgium, and then goes to Canada, and she makes good on the stage. Sir Peter follows her, pretends he is free and marries her and then goes to the front. When Sally finds out the deception, she learns that he has been killed in action and that his wife is also dead. So she marries a young writer. Then Sir Peter turns up in a hospital and confusion worse confounded occurs in Sally's mind. It all works out on paper, but it's hardly worth the trouble. Circulating library -- perhaps.
