At the Moment of Victory Summary

At the Moment of Victory by Catherine Louisa Pirkis

Madge Cohen does not regret her marriage to a man nearly twice her age, but looks forward to the day she is able to remarry. Young and lively, Madge was forced to marry Peter Cohen, a man nearly old enough to be her grandfather. While his wealth affords Madge new and greatly appreciated privileges, she finds Mr. Cohen to be boring. While Madge dreams of all the exciting things she could do with a younger husband, she decides to study music, so she can channel her unspent energy into something other than daydreams. Though Madge is forced to wait for love, she is happy to help find it for her friends, especially Lance, Mr. Cohen's protege. Determined to watch over Lance to ensure he does not make any costly mistakes, Madge and Lance grow to be close friends who support each other without conditions. However, when Lance becomes fascinated with Miss. Shore, a mysterious and blunt woman, Madge has her doubts. After Lance finds Miss Shore homeless and alone, but oddly stoic, he asks Madge to help her, hoping to get to know Miss Shore better. As a stubborn woman, Madge has a difficult time discarding her original ill impression of Miss Shore. Still, she agrees to help Lance grow closer to her, inviting Miss Shore to stay in the Cohen manor for a time. As the arrangement unfolds, Madge becomes increasingly concerned about the mysterious woman, who seems to be completely haunted by a dark event in her past. With intimate descriptions of scenery, characters, and social customs, At the Moment of Victory is a beautiful portrayal of the upper class during the late 19th century. First published in 1889, At the Moment of Victory continues to pique readers' interest with its vivid characters and compelling narrative. This edition of At the Moment of Victory by Catherine Louisa Pirkis features a new, eye-catching cover design and is printed in an easy-to-read font. With these accommodations, At the Moment of Victory caters to a modern audience while preserving the original beauty of Catherine Louisa Pirkis' work.

About Catherine Louisa Pirkis

Catherine Louisa Pirkis (1839-1910) was a British author known for her detective fiction. Pirkis wrote fourteen novels and contributed to many magazines and journals, sometimes publishing under her initials, C.L Pirkis, to avoid gender discrimination. Later in her life, Pirkis transitioned away from her writing career to join her husband, Frederick Pirkis, in his fight for animals' rights. Together, the couple founded an activist organization to save animals from cruel conditions. Their organization continues their advocacy today, and now goes by the name Dogs Trust.
