Excerpt from A Blameless Woman"Silent men, like silent waters, are deep and dangerous."Dr Luscombe was one of the principal medical men in Blankhampton. Everybody liked him. He and his had lived in Blankhampton from generation to generation for at least a couple of hundred years. He himself as the fifth in an unbroken line that had followed medicine as a profession. He was connected with half the county families in the immediate neighbourhood of the town, he had a grand practice, was an exceedingly brilliant surgeon, standing at the head of all the surgeons in Blankshire, and he was, moreover, quite renowned for his success among children.Dr Luscombe lived in a beautiful old house in the Cathedral Close, a house which went by the name of The Courtyard, and which stood within a high-walled garden, and boasted of many wainscoted rooms, of wide staircases, of long corridors, and one of the best entrance halls in the town.There was plenty of room and to spare both for the doctor and his family. His wife, by-the-bye, was a woman of considerable property, and had a tremendous idea of her own position, both by birth and as the wife of the principal doctor in Blankhampton, that most important of cathedral cities.They had never had but three children.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
