Mr. Wayt's Wife's Sister is an engaging fiction by American author Marion Harland. She was a prolific writer of best-selling women's novels and bestselling in fiction and non-fiction genres. Excerpt from Mr. Wayt's Wife's Sister "A glimpse of the occupant of the chair had showed him a wan face too old for a child's, too small for that of a grown person. Before the woman addressed could reply, elfish accents, husky and precise, said, "Not at all?thank you!" and there was a cackle of shrill, feeble laughter."
