The Rain-Girl

Herbert George JENKINS (1876 - 1923)

Richard Beresford has recently returned from the WW-I trenches. He feels he can't go back to his old life in the Foreign Office. Instead, he sells all his possessions (except his books), and sets off on a tramp through the countryside. On the very first day he meets a mysterious girl with enchanting grey eyes, sitting on a gate, in the rain. They inadvertently get separated before he finds out her name, but he is determined to find her again. Romantic comedy from 1919, by the author of "Patricia Brent, spinster". - Summary by Anna Simon
