Cordelia the Magnificent

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.9 stars; 12 reviews)

Cordelia Marlowe carries a high society name but no fortune. She has to make ends meet, but what kind of work can a young lady do whose main education has been social manners and tennis? Her acts lead her in the courtships of three completely different men, but in the end, fate chooses for her, and Cordelia emerges a changed person. A tale of mystery, blackmail and love, written in just 23 days by Leroy Scott, a reporter familiar with the intrigues and social scandals the public enjoys, as the story was also made into a silent film in 1923. - Summary by Rapunzelina (0 hr 39 min)

I promise, you'll be glued to the story. Twists and turns throughout the whole thing. I'm sad it's over, I loved this book.
