SEPTIMUS

CHAPTER I

“I love Nunsmere,” said the Literary Man from London.  “It is a spot where faded lives are laid away in lavender.”

“I’m not a faded life, and I’m not going to be laid away in lavender,” retorted Zora Middlemist.

She turned from him and handed cakes to the Vicar.  She had no desire to pet the Vicar, but he was less unbearable than the Literary Man from London whom he had brought to call on his parishioners.  Zora disliked to be called a parishioner.  She disliked many things in Nunsmere.  Her mother, Mrs. Oldrieve, however, loved Nunsmere, adored the Vicar, and found awe-inspiring in his cleverness the Literary Man from London.
