The Little Lady of the Big House

The Little Lady of the Big House

by Jack London (Author)

The Little Lady of the Big House by Jack London. The story concerns a love triangle. The protagonist, Dick Forrest, is a rancher with a poetic streak (his "acorn song" recalls London's play, "The Acorn Planters"). His wife, Paula, is a vivacious, athletic, and sexually self-aware woman, who falls in love with Evan Graham, an old friend of her husband. Unable to choose between the two men, she wounds herself mortally with a rifle in what her husband is certain is a suicide.  It was Jack Londons last novel to be published during his lifetime.
