Blackthorn Farm

(1915)
A novel by

 
The Dale Family who own a collapsing old house where the Blackthorn Farm brims on the tethers of Devonshire and is comprised of an unfertile farm soil, a deserted tin mine, and some farm animals. They are currently suffering from a hefty debt, that menaces to be the beating blast to aged John Dale, coming as a crime of forgery, fraud and theft which implicate his only one son, Rupert, crashes the abandoned farmland and of his young and pretty daughter, Marjorie into uncertainty. However, Blackthorn Farm has a hidden secret that rests under the ends of the strife, as events connive to let Rupert the sufferer of an ingenious but heinous course of action.

Blackthorn Farm is a story of love and friendship, disloyalty and fidelity, fraud, selfishness, wariness and belief tracing the marks of John's son, Rupert as he goes into the depths of the world, with its twists and topsy-turvy alarming chapter tales. Thereafter, Rupert unveils the whole truth which starts the risky ventures at the deserted farm.

An inspiring and surprising mystery where the plot is not that certain and predictable as readers may think.

Arthur Applin is a famous author of the Edwardian era, he celebrated warm success in writing mysteries and adventure stories, with bits and pieces of love added as a spice, making it a major sub-plot. Many of his works have been somewhat less known, undistinguished and inaccessible, and he is possibly well-known at present for his brief and hapless biography of British Admiral John Jellicoe, entitled Admiral Jellicoe in 1915, interchangeably named as Life of Admiral Jellicoe. The book was written wryly just before the onset of The Great War, as Jellicoe was starting his duty as the Supreme Admiral of the Home Fleets, and printed the book before the Battle of Jutland, the one huge speedy action of the lengthy course of Admiral Jellicoe.
