Cakes And Ale

Written by W. Somerset Maugham

Edward's first wife was the secret behind his success but when he later remarries and sometime thereafter passes away, his second wife is the first to vilify the lady. Only the narrator, Ashenden, understands how much of a muse Rosie had been to several different men.
