"The Fire Within" is the first novel by Patricia Wentworth, the pseudonym of Dora Amy Elles, a British author. Best known for her series of crime fiction novels featuring Miss Maud Silver, a retired governess who becomes a private detective. Wentworth's earliest offering, "The Fire Within" is in contrast a romantic novel.

The wind blew a little chill, and as suddenly as the light had gone, David, too, was gone. One moment, so near--touching her in the darkness--and the next, gone--gone noiselessly, leaving her shaking, quivering.
