Description

Handsome young Tryon Dunham has just returned home on the train from a business trip one evening when he's accosted by a beautiful young woman at the station. She's terrified that she's being followed and asks Dunham if she may walk with him away from the station. Her manner and appearance are those of a well-dressed and well-bred lady.

However, she refuses to tell Tryon her real name or why she is running away. He feels a responsibility for her and arranges for her to accompany him to a dinner party where she delights everyone there with her exceptional musical talent at the piano. Tryon then assists her in leaving the city on a later train that same night.

Captivated by her beauty and talent, he is determined to solve the mystery of her identity. What frightened her so badly that she would leave wearing only the clothes on her back and no money? Is she an adventuress or thief masquerading as a lady in distress? A beautiful lunatic who has escaped an asylum? An heiress who has been declared missing? Tryon will not stop searching until he knows the answer.

Reader reviews

  • (4/5)
    I found it to be a good mystery inside a nice story. A good reader, too.
  • (5/5)
    Just a great short story. Thoroughly liked it and the two main characters.
  • (5/5)
    Although this was a pretty short story, it was written with very interesting detail.
  • (2/5)
    The story itself was alright. Nothing earth-shattering, but interesting enough for some background noise while doing chores. The narration, however, is awful. It sounds like the reader has just learned to read for the first time. The cadence is awkward - the entire reading lacks inflection.
  • (4/5)
    It was nice to find a Librivox book that one could follow. The narrator, while not an actor, read well. The book is very dated, but it’s a lovely story and never drags. A perfect thing to listen to while doing needlework.
  • (4/5)
    Basically a good story a little dated in some of the disruptive language used.
  • (5/5)
    I am overjoyed to see GLH books listed. Wonderfully Done!
  • (2/5)
    Book was smooth, but slow moving. Was similar to watch someone live a day of their life.
