Marie Corelli : A Romance of Two Worlds

“A Romance of Two Worlds” is the first book of Marie Corelli’s that I read and I’ve been intrigued by her life and works ever since. It was her first novel.

In the prologue Marie Corelli wrote "..... I wish it to be plainly understood that in this book, I personally advocate no new theory of either religion or philosophy; nor do I hold myself answerable for the opinions expressed by any of my characters. My aim is to let facts speak for themselves. If they seem strange, unreal, even impossible, I can only say that the things of the invisible world most always appear so to those whose thoughts and desires are centred on this life only."

Although "A Romance of Two Worlds" is the favorite,"The Life Everlasting" is a close second .....
