'Her Assigned Husband' is a crime novel written by Ambrose Pratt. The story follows Amelia Blessington who desired to signify to her son that she was piously resigned to the inevitable. Despite this, her eyes did not betoken resignation. They sparkled with a fine, malicious fire which seemed to take color from the burning logs at which she gazed. Sir Harry Blessington regarded her with a cold appraising stare. His eyes were cynical and deeply discontented.
