About Book

Book Description
The world has felt upon its hot lips the perfumed kisses of the beautiful heroine of Three Weeks. The brilliant flame that was her life has blazed a path into every corner of the globe. It is a world-renowned novel of consuming emotion that has made the name of its author, Elinor Glyn, the most discussed of all writers of modern fiction.

"It is a book to make one forget that the world is grey. Be as sad, as sane as you like, for all the other days of your life, but steal one mad day, I adjure you, and read Three Weeks."

-- Percival Pollard in Town Topics

"The power and beauty of its descriptions and the pathos of its scenes are undeniable."

-- The Western Christian Advocate

"A cleverly told tale, full of dainty sentiment, of poetic dreaming and dramatic incident."

-- The Brooklyn Eagle

"We feel inclined to throw at her (the heroine) neither stones nor laurels, but rather to congratulate the author upon a powerful story that lays a grip upon the mind and heart."

-- The San Francisco Argonaut

"No wonder that Three Weeks is one of the best sellers."

-- The Detroit Free Press

Download Description
You must not just drift, my Paul, like so many of your countrymen do. You must help to stem the tide of your nation's decadence, and be a strong man. For me, when I read now of England, it seems as if all the hereditary legislators--it is what you call your nobles, eh?--these men have for their motto, like Louis XV., Apres moi le deluge--It will last my time. Paul, wherever I am, it will give me joy for you to be strong and great, sweetheart. I shall know then I have not loved just a beautiful shell, whose mind I was able to light for a time. That is a sadness, Paul, perhaps the greatest of all, to see a soul one has illuminated and awakened to the highest point gradually slipping back to a browsing sheep.
