1900. 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. Old Rose and Silver begins: The last hushed chord died into silence, but the woman lingered, dreaming over the keys. Firelight from the end of the room brought red-gold gleams into the dusky softness of her hair and shadowed her profile upon the opposite wall. No answering flash of jewels met the questioning light-there was only a mellow glow from the necklace of tourmalines, quaintly set, that lay upon the white lace of her gown.
