Charles Rex

Book cover
By: (1881-1939)

Charles Rex is a captivating novel that follows the life of a young man named Charles, who faces numerous challenges and obstacles as he tries to make a name for himself in the world. The author, Ethel M. Dell, does a fantastic job of creating a vivid and engaging story that keeps the reader hooked from start to finish.

The characters in the novel are well-developed and relatable, and I found myself becoming emotionally invested in their struggles and triumphs. Charles is a particularly compelling protagonist, as he struggles to find his place in the world while navigating complex family dynamics and societal expectations.

Dell's writing is both poignant and evocative, drawing the reader in with her descriptive prose and vivid imagery. Her exploration of themes such as love, loyalty, and ambition adds depth and nuance to the story, making it more than just a simple tale of one man's journey.

Overall, Charles Rex is a beautifully written, engaging novel that will appeal to fans of historical fiction and character-driven stories. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a compelling read that will keep them captivated until the very last page.

Book Description:
Excerpt: "Saltash was thoroughly cosmopolitan in his tastes; he liked amusement but he abhorred boredom. He was never really wicked unless he was bored. And then- que voulez vous? He did not guide the star of destiny."

On his last night in Valrosa, Saltash returns to his luxurious yacht to find a stowaway, a young woman disguised as a boy. She pleads to be kept by him in order to escape from her abuser. Although ill used by life she is still very pure and Saltash falls head over heels in love with her. She in turn adores him but he feels unworthy of her. Torn by a sense of duty and fairness he tries to marry her off to someone he believes would be a more suitable match. Romance and mystery, a delightful sprinkle of humour and wit, and wonderful characters make this an emotional read that you will not soon forget. - Summary by Celine Major
