The Tinted Venus


Read by Don W. Jenkins

(4.2 stars; 12 reviews)

When a young newly engaged man finds himself bound for an amusement garden with an old flame, not his fiancee, it is not surprising that he still feels some attraction for her. When they escape the heat of the dance floor to walk among the trees in the garden, it is not surprising that they should come upon a statue of a woman of uncommon beauty, with the smallest hands. When the young man attempts to demonstrate that his absent fiancee has hands even smaller than this immortalized stone woman, it is surprising when the engagement ring he is carrying fits easily on the stone finger, but does not easily come off. There are many surprises to come with with this sculpted woman and the all too lively young lady from his past. - Summary by Don W. Jenkins (5 hr 47 min)

Thank you, Mr. Jenkins


(5 stars)

As an Army combat veteran my thoughts are often depressed but you're reading of this very good story is worth more than money or medicine can buy. I have listened to it several times, and also "Bindle" and "Mrs. Bindle" and you're manner of reading adds laughter to my life, and may God bless you for such a wonderful gift. Thanks also to everyone at Librivox.
