Jaffery was the #6 Best Selling novel in USA 1915.

The book follows the lives of Hilary, the narrator, and three of his friends whom he met at Cambridge. One soon dies - another (Adrian) writes a hugely successful novel and marries Doria. Jaffery is a larger than life character who falls in love with Doria at first sight. Also in the story are Liosha, a fiery Albanian widow rescued from a life of servitude partly by Jaffery’s intervention, and Barbara, the steadfast wife of Hilary.

Their lives change and the story develops as Adrian struggles to write his second novel. 

The novel was the basis for the early 1916 black and white silent film directed by George Irving and starring C. Aubrey Smith.
