The Bridge of San Luis Rey (complete novel) - Thornton Wilder, 1928. A suspension bridge in the Peruvian Andes gives way, sending a group of travellers to their demise. Who were they, and what chances of fate led them to their rendezvous with death at San Luis Rey? Excellent story. Basquerie - Eleanor Mercein Kelly, 1927. A lovely, not-so-young American girl in Europe must decide between love and (possibly?) a more financially wise match. This author is worth further investigation. Judith - A.E. Coppard, 1927. Aristocratic Judith meets and dallies with a handsome young schoolmaster, to his eventual tragic downfall. A Mother in Mannville - Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, 1936. Touchingly poignant short story about an orphan boy and his integrity and pride. Kerfol - Edith Wharton, 1916. The tragic tale of a jealous French nobleman and his faithless wife. Supernatural elements - something of a ghost story.
