    Beatrice was first published in 1890, and was H Rider Haggard s 10th novel, out of 58 titles Unlike so many of his other books, Beatrice is one that features almost no action scenes whatsoever no lost races, no adventure, no battles, no supernatural elements What it IS, is a beautifully written romance novel indeed, is is one of Haggard s most emotional works It tells the story of the ill fated love affair between Beatrice Granger, an unmarried Welsh school teacher, and Geoffrey Bingham, an unha [...]

    This is one of the saddest books I ever read Beatrice could have been patient for 3 days and she could have gotten the man she loved, but she chose to end her life Tragic

    Though a very good story, this is not a happily ever after account of the plutonic love affair between Beatrice Granger, an unmarried schoolteacher, and Geoffrey Bingham, an unhappily married barrister who lives in London Beatrice and Geoffery are really 2 well matched soul mates who lives are complicated by Geoffrey s self centered, money focused titled wife, Beatrice s jealous plotting sister Owen Davies, the wealthiest man in the area who wants to marry Beatrice and whom she refuses.

    This was a new author for me I liked him very much, so much I have since read several of his books If you don t recognise his name, maybe you ll recognise one of his characters Alan Quartermain The Raiders of the Lost Ark series of movies were based on some Henry Rider Haggard s books Tempt you to read him

    I don t agree with adultery at any level, but this book transcended that theme, for me This guy can write, and I enjoyed the way he crafted his art.
