gilt titles spine; blind-stamped design front cover; red top edge; translated from the French original edition published three years earlier; "the record of the struggles of a very noble and courageous woman to adapt herself to the tragic conditions of an invalid life, when suddenly arrested in a musician's career, and isolated from the world at large by a form of heart disease which keeps her life in constant jeopardy. It deals with two dramas; the solitary drama of the inner self which shows its gradual spiritualisation, and that enacted between herself and those round her. The book is of special interest to the sick, their doctors and nurses, but it should also make a strong appeal to the general reader, for no one is exempt from a similar trial, or from the call to make such crippled lives more tolerable."; price-intact D/J. has edge-wear & is a litlle grubby; 224 pages.
