ANTHONY ADVERSE WAS A LOVE-CHILD...
...begotten in France, born in the Alps and reared in Italy, then launched upon a life of adventure. This is his story.
Anthony was the name the nuns gave the naked and squalling newborn child they found abandoned at their convent gate. They knew nothing of his past, of the star-crossed lovers who were his parents nor of the violent events which made him an orphan.
Playing his solitary games at the fountain in the convent courtyard, the child grew He did not know enough of the outside world even to dream of the voyages and adventures that would be his nor of the women who would love him.
Only the statue of madonna that was left with him at the convent gate knew the story of his past, shared his thoughts and his prayers and would be witness to the extraordinary life that would come to Anthony Adverse.
(This is the first part of a 3-volume edition of Hervey Allen's epic.)
