Sinopsis: Excerpt from The Wasted Island

Love's main function is to make the world go round and he cares nothing for the subsequent fate of the instruments he uses to that end. "From fairest creatures we desire increase" and many a clever young man who has been caught in Nature's lure has spent a life of vain regrets unconsoled by the physical perfection of the offspring for whom he has sacrificed his happiness.

One such was that handsome and plausible young physician Eugene Lascelles who, one night of wonder in a garden by the sea, told pretty, foolish, affectionate Alice Reilly that he loved her, and in due course led her to the altar. So far as their personal happiness was concerned their wedding was a disaster. The honeymoon itself revealed insurmountable barriers between their souls: six months of married life accentuated them. He was too selfish and she was too stupid to make the best of things and in another year all pretence of agreement between them was gone: hatred even was beginning to creep into the soul of the man and despair into that of the woman. It remained to be seen whether Nature would justify her trickery by making the union fertile. Alice longed for a son in the hope of thereby regaining her husband's affections; and to him a son was a necessity to console him for his disappointment in his wife. So in patient longing the third year of their marriage went by; in desperate longing the fourth. And then, in the spring-time of the first year of the closing decade of the century, Bernard was born.
