Literary Riddle to Consider and Solve

literary-riddle-to-solveThis post has a literary riddle to consider and solve. If you read widely, this should not be difficult. Think a little!

I’m back . . . as there have been a severe lack riddles on this blog.  I have to keep readers on their toes.  I have a literary based riddle for you to solve. The answer is the name of a certain book. My name evokes sadness,

Though I comfort those in pain

You find me by water’s edge,

Yet despite my nature I can rust

My memory is long enough,

To recall old ragtime fame

Sinister are impressions of me,

There are those who never trust

What am I?

So, what is your answer?

Thank you for reading.
