She was sweet as well as fair, but willful, and when they said, "Fair Princess, you must marry," she replied, "The time has not yet come. I see nowhere in Inaba the man who may be my lord."

    This was an awesome read! I special ordered it from Forgotten Book.com. This was a reprint of a book published in1908. So yes I was very thrilled to read this and add it to my personal library. This had many stories and they were short and to the point. At the same time they were very entertaining.
