A Spinner in the Sun
1905. Myrtle Reed came from a religious and literary family, where she was encouraged to be a writer. She became a freelance journalist after graduating from high school. Her poems, sketches, and stories began appearing regularly in such periodicals as the Bookman, Munsey's Magazine, and the National Magazine. Her first novel, Love Letters of a Musician, was widely popular and led to other works. The book begins: The little house was waiting, as it had waited for many years. Grey and weather-worn, it leaned toward the sheltering hillside as though to gather from the kindly earth some support and comfort for old age. Five-and-twenty Winters had broken its spirit, five-and-twenty Springs had not brought back the heart of it, that had once gone out, with dancing feet and singing, and had returned no more.
