Book Description
When first published in 1904 this grand tale of adventure by a young English woman traveling alone in the Sahara Desert was regarded as a titillating piece of literature. Today Robert Hichen's epic novel continues to enchant and intrigue readers with its dark mystery and rich cultural backdrop - Algeria's hot sultry climate, noisy cities, and exotic evenings. The Garden of Allah was the basis for three films. The first two were silent films. The third was an Academy Award winner produced by David O. Selznick in 1936 and starring Marlene Dietrich, Charles Boyer, and Basil Rathbone.

1907. Illustrated. Robert Hichens is best known today as the author of the classic supernatural tale How Love Came to Professor Guildea. He was a prolific author, producing volumes of fiction and nonfiction that frequently achieved huge commercial success, such as The Garden of Allah and The Paradine Case.

Adoration leads to abnegation, and Sir Claude, as soon as he was a married man, began to give way to Lady Wyverne. She was a very pretty and changeable blonde. Any permanence seemed to her dull; and this trait secretly agitated her husband, who desired to be permanent in her life and not to be thought dull by her.

He said to himself that he was madly in love. Never yet had he been worsted in an amour by any man. The blood surged to his head at the mere thought of being conquered in the only battle of life worth fighting--the battle for a woman, and by a man of more than twice his age, a man who ought long ago to have been married and have had children as old as the Signorina Vere.

Book Description
It was evident that Mrs. Ulford had been complaining to Sir Donald about his son's conduct. With whom? Lady Holme could not doubt that it was with herself. She had read, with one glance at the fluttering pink eyelids, the story of the Leo Ulford's menage. Now, she was not preoccupied with any regret for her own cruelty or for another woman's misery. The egoism spoken of by Carey was not dead in her yet, but very much alive. As she sat in the corner of the brougham, pressing herself against the padded wall, she was angry for herself, pitiful for herself. And she was jealous--horribly jealous. That woke up her imagination, all the intensity of her. Where was Fritz to-night? She did not know.
