Watch and Ward by Henry James

The rare original version of Watch and Ward by acclaimed author, Henry James, as it appeared in The Atlantic Monthly from August to December of 1871. A book version was later published in 1878, in which James made hundreds of revisions. Henry James is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism.

Wealthy Roger Lawrence adopts twelve-year-old Nora Lambert after her father kills himself in the hotel room next to Lawrences. Roger had refused financial assistance to the man, and he feels remorse. Nora is not a pretty child but she soon starts to develop, as does Rogers idea of eventually marrying her.

Unfortunately for Roger, once Nora matures into a beautiful young woman, she is attracted to two other men: worthless George Fenton and the somewhat hypocritical minister, Hubert Lawrence (Rogers cousin).

After various adventures Nora winds up in the clutches of Fenton in New York...

A poignant story of unfulfilled lives and lost love!
