1907. Tracy was a prolific novelist and mystery writer who also wrote under the pseudonym Gordon Holmes. The book begins: I think I shall enjoy this trip, purred Isobel Baring, nestling comfortably among the cushions of her deck chair. A steward was arranging tea for two at a small table. The Kansas, with placid hum of engines, was speeding evenly through an azure sea. I agree with that opinion most heartily, though, to be sure, so much depends on the weather, replied her friend, Elsie Maxwell, rising to pour out the tea. Already the brisk sea-breeze had kissed the Chilean pallor from Elsie's face, which had regained its English peach-bloom. Isobel Baring's complexion was tinged with the warmth of a pomegranate. At sea, even in the blue Pacific, she carried with her the suggestion of a tropical garden. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
