A Scent of Roses

Multiple File Formats

Harry looks a lot like his ancestor whose portrait hangs in the seat of the Earls of Cragmoor. Something about him speaks to Maggie, who happily agrees to write to him as she continues on her tour of old English castles. Before long Harry invites her and her traveling companion to spend Easter weekend at his home. While there Maggie experiences haunting dreams of an ancient love affair and its tragic aftermath.

Harry's sister, Bea, does not welcome Maggie and, in fact, is actively antagonistic to her. She does her best to separate them, but the growing love between Maggie and Harry is strong and Bea's machinations fail. Over time  her obsession strengthens, until she loses her grip on reality and captures Maggie, intending to kill her. But is it Bea who is acting thus, or has one of Harry's ghostly ancestors somehow captured Bea's body and is using it to repeat a ghastly chapter in the family's history?

Product Information
File Size:
1.8 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
