A rather worn oak chair can just be seen and a corner of a very elderly Turkish rug. There drifts into the garden the sound of someone, - almost obviously a girl, and a temperamental girl, practising on the piano, now irritably, now languidly, and always with an underlying sense of thinking of something better.

There is no one in the garden except a little quaint figure, in a home-made black frock, higher in front than behind, and a large apron, ironed and starched too stiffly. On her whispy hair is stuck a whimsical cap that is altogether incapable of sitting straight. This is Cookie, who, with a touch of bravado, is picking sweet peas.Through the gates comes a wiry middle-aged man with the moustache of one who drinks as often as luck wills it and tight fitting trousers, cleverly patched. He has a three days growth of beard upon his chin and a quick, cunning, but not unhumorous, eye.

His bare brown arms are closely tattooed.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
