Peter spent the last five years in the South of America and he loved it there. He loved the eternal sunshine and warm weather that he experienced there, but all good things come to an end and he finds himself being sent back to London.

When Peter arrives in London he is sure that it will only be a short stint until he is relocated somewhere else, or at least that’s what he’s hoping.

Peter finds himself surprised, however, when a girl from the inn catches his eye. At first he is sure that he has never hated a girl more in his life, but when their paths keep crossing and he realizes that she stands for everything that he had ever believed in, he realizes that perhaps London might have more to offer than rainy days and frosty night.

The Man in the Iron Mask (Dream Classics)

by Alexandre Dumas

Dumas constructs the plot around the notion that the Man in the Iron Mask is the twin brother of Louis XIV, Philippe, who had been concealed and imprisoned from birth by his father, Louis XIII, and his mother, Anne of Austria, “for the good of France”. Only a very few people living at the start of the novel know of Philippe’s existence; these include his mother, Anne, and her former confidante, the Duchesse de Chevreuse. Chevreuse has let the secret slip to Aramis when they had an affair.



The Scarlet Letter (Dream Classics)

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Scarlet Letter, published in 1850, is an American novel written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and is generally considered to be his magnum opus. Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who gives birth after committing adultery, refuses to name the father, and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity.
Throughout the novel, Hawthorne explores questions of grace, legalism, sin and guilt.



New Grub Street (Dream Classics)

by George Gissing

The story is about the literary world of late-Victorian London that Gissing inhabited, and its title, New Grub Street, alludes to the London street, Grub Street, which in the 18th century became synonymous with the “hack writing” that pervades Gissing’s novel; Grub Street itself was no longer extant when Gissing was writing. The novel contrasts Edwin Reardon, a congenitally uncommercial but talented writer, against Jasper Milvain, a selfish and unscrupulous hack who rejects artistic endeavour for material gain. Milvain’s trite, manipulative work ascends while Reardon’s work–and his life–spiral downward.
The novel suggests that the literary world rewards materialistic self-promotion more than serious artistic sensibility. Gissing’s biography–a respected writer who struggled for a long time to obtain commercial success–strongly suggests the novel is autobiographical, the author’s stand-in being (of course) Reardon.
