eBook available: The Sundered Streams

Another book from our Digital Library has made its way through Distributed Proofreaders into Project Gutenberg.

The Sundered Streams: The History of a Memory That Had No Full Stops was the first published novel by Reginald Farrer, an author better known for his non-fiction works on gardening. The novel’s plot takes some startling twists and turns — especially given that the work was published in 1907 — but the plot often takes the back seat to a verbose and tangent-prone narrative. Some of these tangents touch on subjects close to Farrer’s heart; while plants are seldom mentioned, Buddhism plays a very significant role in the plot, and a one still-relevant aside discusses the timeless popularity of Jane Austen’s works.

If you want to take a look for yourself, the whole book is freely available on Project Gutenberg for online reading or download in a variety of popular eBook formats.
