Excerpt from The Root of Evil: A Novel Again the huckster's cry rang over the Square: "Straw - berries! Straw - berries!" The dreamer closed his eyes and smiled. A flood of tender memories stole into his heart from the sunlit fields of the South. He had gone hunting wild strawberries with Nan Primrose on the hills at home in North Carolina the day he first knew that he loved her. How beautiful she was that day in the plain blue cotton dress which fitted her superb young figure to perfection! How well he remembered every detail of that ramble over the red hills - he could hear now the whistle of a bob white sitting on the fence near the spring where they lunched, calling to his mate. As Nan nestled closer on the old stile, they saw the little brown, bird slip from her nest in a clump of straw, lift her head, and softly answer. "Look!" Nan had whispered excitedly. "There's her nest!" He recalled distinctly his tremor of sympathetic excitement as her warm hand drew him to the spot. With peculiar vividness he remembered the extraordinary moisture of the palm of her hand trembling with eager interest as he counted the eggs - twenty beauties. But above all memories stood out one! As he bent close above her he caught for the first time in his life the delicate perfume of her dark rich hair and felt the thrill of its mystery. "It's their little home, isn't it, Jim!" she exclaimed, "I hope I can build as snug a nest for you some day, Nan!" he whispered gravely. And when she stood silent and blushing, he made the final plunge. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
