The Voice of the Heart a Romance (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Voice of the Heart a Romance Devil's paint-brushes! Horrors! Emma looked her, scorn. Devil's paint-brushes, indeed! I want white ﬂowers only. White ﬂowers only, giggled Louise. Betty Gar side, did you hear that? The girl addressed as Betty Garside raised her brows without lifting her eyes. They were beautifully penciled black brows, and stood out with startling vividness from the white face. Betty Garside was barely eighteen. There was about her a fragrance and a dewiness which' made her conspicuous, even among the group of attrae tive girls with whom she was sitting. Her eyes were black; her blue-black hair lay back from the temples in glossy waves; to - day, because the sultry August morning had given her a slight headache, she wore the shower of black curls schoolgirl fashion down her back, securing the heavy cluster of hair with a big white bow in the nape of the neck. Her complexion, instead of being the usual dusky complexion of the brunette, was dazzlingly, snowily white. A faint sea-shell pink invaded the cheeks in trailing ridges, on much the same plan as the petal of a white peony is veined with pink.
