Summary

Pride And Prejudice, the story of Mrs. Bennet's attempts to marry off her five daughters is one of the best-loved and most enduring classics in English literature. Excitement fizzes through the Bennet household at Longbourn in Hertfordshire when young, eligible Mr. Charles Bingley rents the fine house nearby. He may have sisters, but he also has male friends, and one of these—the haughty, and even wealthier, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy—irks the vivacious Elizabeth Bennet, the second of the Bennet girls. She annoys him. Which is how we know they must one day marry. The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and Darcy is a splendid rendition of civilized sparring. As the characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, Jane Austen's radiantly caustic wit and keen observation sparkle.

    A Romance of Wastdale is a novel by the British writer A.E.W. Mason.
    
    In 1921 it was turned into a film of the same name directed by Maurice Elvey and made by Stoll Pictures, Britain's biggest studio of the silent era.
    
    A.E.W. Mason (7 May 1865 – 22 November 1948) was an English author and politician. He is best remembered for his 1902 novel of courage and cowardice in wartime, The Four Feathers and is also known as the creator of Inspector Hanaud, a French detective who was an early template for Agatha Christie's famous Hercule Poirot.
    
    His prolific output in short stories and novels were frequently made and remade into films during his lifetime; though many of the silent versions have been lost or forgotten, the Korda productions of Fire Over England (1937) and The Four Feathers (1939) remain enduring classics of British cinema.

    A short story of a little girl who is a servant and how she won the heart of an unbelieving gardener. 
    One of Grace's earliest books was "A Little Servant", published in 1890 while she was still unmarried. If you're looking for an original, it's written by "Grace Livingston".  
    A review is found in "The New York Evangelist" in February 1890: 
    D. Lothrop and Company annouce a number of mid-winter publications...A new book by Grace Livingston, entitled "A Little Servant", is just the thing to give children a high and noble conception of the duty and privilege of "by love serving one another" 
    Since "A Little Servant" is a children's book, it can be hard to find. It's been reprinted as part of several paperback collections over the years, but if you've never read it, here it is.
