Storm by May Agnes Fleming.
Storm – a novel. Johanna, a wild child hellion from the country, runs off to New York City.
Mrs. Fleming’s stories are growing more and more popular every day. Their delineations of character, life-like conversations, flashes of wit, constantly varying scenes, and deeply interesting plots, combine to place their author in the very first rank of Modern Novelists.
“Look at it well,” says Miss Ventnor, “it is what you have never seen before—what you may never see again—a Haunted House!”
One slim, gloved hand, looking like a perfect hand in dark gray marble, points the dramatic speech. Miss Ventnor is given to dramatic and epigrammatic little speeches at all times, but as she is not given to talking nonsense at any time, I know there is “method in the madness” of this assertion now. And yet—a haunted house! I laugh a little, as I lean out from the carriage to look.
