She awakes as every morning, with the same feeling of being in a place where she didn’t want to be. She sees the many faces going through her mind. Della shakes her head, holding back tears. Her heart is aching for something more. What did her mother always say? Oh yes, “Follow your heart, Della, follow your heart.” Della rises and goes to the window. Della turns. Feeling of loneliness washes over her. Her day has already started, whether she wants it or not. The face she sees in the mirror doesn’t look back at all. Her mind is far away, a place in a valley, a small house by a stream. She feels happy as she goes to the door of the house but steps back in haste. A shadow fills the doorway, a man, tall and dark. Her heart is racing.

This antiquarian book contains J. M. Barrie’s 1929 play: «Mary Rose». During a trip to a remote Scottish island as a child, Mary Rose mysteriously vanishes. The island is searched endlessly to no avail, until Mary unbelievably reappears as strangely as she had vanished, having no recollection of being lost at all. Years later as a young mother and wife, Mary revisits the island with her husband and once again vanishes without a trace. Reappearing decades later this time, Mary has no recollection of her vanishing and returns having not aged a day. This play is a masterpiece of the stage, utterly enthralling and sure to entertain the discerning reader today just as it did when first published. James Matthew Barrie (1860 – 1937) was a famous dramatist and author, most famous as being the creator of Peter Pan. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
