A Spinner in the Sun

Myrtle Reed

Book Overview: 

Myrtle Reed may always be depended upon to write a story in which poetry, charm, tenderness and humor are combined into a clever and entertaining book. Her characters are delightful and she always displays a quaint humor of expression and a quiet feeling of pathos which give a touch of active realism to all her writings. In "A Spinner in the Sun" she tells an old-fashioned love story, of a veiled lady who lives in solitude and whose features her neighbors have never seen. There is a mystery at the heart of the book that throws over it the glamour of romance

Book Excerpt: 
. . .After the first shock of realisation, one perceives through the darkness that the strength to bear them has come also, like some good angel.

A lover shudders at the thought of Death, yet knows that some day, on the road they walk together, the Grey Angel with the white poppies will surely take one of them by the hand. The road winds through shadows, past many strange and difficult places, and wrecks are strewn all along the way. They laugh at the storms that beat upon them, take no reck of bruised feet nor stumbling, for, behold, they are together, and in that one word lies all.

Sometimes, in the mist ahead, which, as they enter it, is seen to be wholly of tears, the road forks blindly, and there is nothing but night ahead for each. The Grey Angel with the unfathomable eyes approaches slowly, with no sound save the hushed murmur of wings. The dread white poppies are in his outstretched hand—the great, nodding white poppies. . . Read More

Just found this story online of which I thoroughly enjoyed reading in one day. It certainly was a very old fashioned tale of broken hearts, dreams and misery. But also of coming to life, blooming and forgiveness. So many elements woven into this story aside from being that of romance - that of cruel

simply loved it… the Pipers wisdom was deep and so inspiring to me.

A very lovely book about grief, forgiveness and love.

I have mixed feelings on this book. I found a lot of the characters were over the top in their beliefs and actions, but it was balanced with some really lovely and well thought out points. Though, to quote another reviewer "the theology is mixed

The dramatic reading is half the goodness of this. Perhaps more. I did howl with laughter over some parts. Other parts are sad. A couple chapters disjointed or a hindrance to unity. I'll definitely recommend this book to others.
