Corelli was a very popular writer of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, and enjoyed recognition as one of the most widely read authors of the day alongside H.G. Wells and Rudyard Kipling. This book allows the modern reader to enjoy the work of an often-overlooked great author. "Thelma: A Norwegian Princess" is a classic story about a forbidden love. Told over the course of three books, all included in this collection, the principal characters are Thelma Guldmar, a poor girl from an outcasted family, and Sir Philip-Bruce Errington, a member of a royal family. Guldmar's father is a pagan and she is a Catholic, which brings accusations of witchdom against the young girl from the largely Lutheran population. Corelli's style is accessible to all, which is something her work is often critiqued for. The subtext does not reach the depths in this novel as it does in many works that are considered on par with. However this does not detract from the overall enjoyment of the book and only the strictest of critics will be disappointed. Ultimately, "Thelma: A Norwegian Princess" is a lovely read for those both familiar and new to her writing. A very worthwhile read, for a much under-appreciated author.
