A Word I Learned from Emilie Loring

I’ve always liked reading “vintage” books and I’ve been immersing myself in Emilie Loring novels lately. I’ve read eight so far and I have five more sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.

Emilie Loring lived from 1866 to 1951 and was a prolific writer of wholesome and patriotic action-adventure romance novels.

As I read, I kept coming across the word “maline” in Loring’s descriptions of clouds, fog, mist, and smoke and I finally decided to look it up:

Maline—A delicate type of silk net used in dressmaking.
(Dictionary.com)

These are the thirty novels Emilie Loring wrote herself from 1922 to 1950.
(After she died in 1951, her family had twenty more novels published under her name, which were based on her unpublished materials.)
