Read full description of the books:
"Pe tatăl ei, Ioana îl vedea foarte rar; în primul rând pentru că omul acesta nu o putuse ierta niciodată, că se născuse fată, când el ar fi dorit un băiat și în al doilea, pentru că născându-se fată moștenise urâțenia lui, în loc să fi moștenit frumusețea mamei ei. Părinții nu-și dau seama că sunt nedrepți cu copiii lor, când nu-i pot suporta pentru însușirile și defectele pe care ei înșiși li le-au transmis."
"-Esențialul este să insuflăm bolnavului interes pentru ceea ce se întâmplă în jurul lui. Oamenii care își pierd vederea în mod subit, se simt ademeniți să trăiască într-o lume a lor interioară, o lume plină de închipuiri, de amintiri și vedenii pe care le dezgroapă din trecut; în fond aceasta este singura lume care se mai poate potrivi cu el."

Read information about the authorShe was born Florence Louisa Charlesworth in Limpsfield, Surrey, England, the daughter of the local Anglican rector. One of three girls, she was a sister to Maud Ballington Booth, the Salvation Army leader and co-founder of the Volunteers of America. When Florence was seven years old, the family moved to Limehouse in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
In 1881, Florence Charlesworth married the Rev. Charles W. Barclay and honeymooned in the Holy Land, where, in Shechem, they reportedly discovered Jacob's Well, the place where, according to the Gospel of St John, Jesus met the woman of Samaria (John 4-5). Florence Barclay and her husband settled in Hertford Heath, in Hertfordshire, where she fulfilled the duties of a rector's wife. She became the mother of eight children. In her early forties health problems left her bedridden for a time and she passed the hours by writing what became her first romance novel titled The Wheels of Time. Her next novel, The Rosary, a story of undying love, was published in 1909 and its success eventually resulted in its being translated into eight languages and made into five motion pictures, also in several languages. According to the New York Times, the novel was the No.1 bestselling novel of 1910 in the United States. The enduring popularity of the book was such that more than twenty-five years later, Sunday Circle magazine serialized the story and in 1926 the prominent French playwright Alexandre Bisson adapted the book as a three-act play for the Parisian stage.
Florence Barclay wrote eleven books in all, including a work of non-fiction. Her novel The Mistress of Shenstone (1910) was made into a silent film of the same title in 1921. Her short story Under the Mulberry Tree appeared in the special issue called "The Spring Romance Number" of the Ladies Home Journal of 11 May 1911.
Florence Barclay died in 1921 at the age of fifty-eight. The Life of Florence Barclay: a study in personality was published anonymously that year by G. P. Putnam's Sons "by one of Her Daughters.
