Summary

Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816 at Thornton in Yorkshire, and spent much of her life in the small moorland town of Haworth. Work as a teacher and governess took her as far afield as Brussels, but Haworth and her intimacy with her sisters Emily and Anne remained the centre of her life until their deaths, and that of her brother Branwell, in 1848 and 1849. She died in 1855.

    Deep-hidden in evil, Satan’s Suicide Club sat in council — and men died. What dreadful force drove these men, leaders of society with everything to live for, to end their lives at the behest of that sinister being who sardonically called himself Professor Mephisto? And why did men and women suffer the tortures of the damned rather than defy this mysterious being? Richard Wentworth once more assumes the cloak of the Spider to free these lost ones from a living hell and a disgraceful death — and steps into the jaws of a devil’s trap that casts his life among the lives in pawn! Devil’s Pawnbroker is torn from the pages of the May, 1937 issue of The Spider magazine.

    Helen Maria Hunt Jackson, born Helen Fiske was an American poet and writer who became an activist on behalf of improved treatment of Native Americans by the U.S. government. She described the adverse effects of government actions in her history A Century of Dishonor (1881). Her novel Ramona* (1884) dramatized the federal government's mistreatment of Native Americans in Southern California after the Mexican–American War and attracted considerable attention to her cause. Commercially popular, it was estimated to have been reprinted 300 times and most readers liked its romantic and picturesque qualities rather than its political content. The novel was so popular that it attracted many tourists to Southern California who wanted to see places from the book. (Wikipedia) * LibriVox has two versions of Ramona in the catalog.
