OH, TO BE SUCH A HUMAN!

Diplomat Henry White
Diplomat Henry White

And what did Henry White, who was neither witty nor a brilliant talker, nor even, to tell the truth, a man of very deep cultivation, contribute to this gang (British select society)?

‘I really think it was his GOODNESS,’ Lord Robert Cecil suggested. ‘He never said an ill-natured or bitter thing in his life. He never claimed anything as his due. If there was a dull or disagreeable duty to be done, Harry took it on. Every lame dog naturally turned to him for help. To say he was unselfish is inadequate. He lived to increase the happiness of others.'”  from THE VANDERBILT ERA by Louis Auchincloss

weary of runningSpeaking of humans, there’s plenty of them (though not quite so good) in my new book: WEARY of RUNNING. I mention this because it just came out and my first book will be on sale for 99 cents Friday and Saturday for KINDLE.

HAPPY WEEKEND!

    • Haha. I’m so delighted that you like the cover since my daughter-in-law and I designed it.

      I think we will be going back to The House on Tenafly Road and redesigning the cover which I was never in love with. I’d always hoped to do covers myself but it seemed too intimidating. In the end it was a lot of fun. 🙂 (I already have ideas for the covers for the next 3 books!)
