The Hidden Road - Charles Wadsworth Camp
Immediately after having read the mystery story Sinister Island by Wadsworth Camp, I started on The Hidden Road, expecting much of the same murderous fare. Instead, I found a love story, and a convoluted one at that. Written in 1922, this is the tale of Nicolas Aldrich, a well-bred young man who returns to New York after WW1, to find his family, fortunes, and friends quite changed. He eventually falls into the pattern of his old life and old loves, but the presence of a striking young woman called Eleanor Grantley continually disturbs him.
