So taken by Margaret Sanger was H. G. Wells that he based a novel on the time that he spent with her. "Secret Places of the Heart" is a thinly-veiled autobiographical work revolving around Sir Richard Hardy's attempt to remedy his matrimonial problems during a trip around the English countryside with a psychiatrist. Contents include: "The Consultation", "Lady Hardy", "The Departure", "At Maidenhead", "In The Land Of The Forgotten Peoples", "The Encounter At Stonehenge", "Companionship", "Full Moon", "The Last Days Of Sir Richmond Hardy". Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
