An interesting account of the mental processes of a post-

War girl who by mistake marries a parson. The author, in common with another personage whom it would be rude to mention, can quote Scripture to her purpose, but takes an extremely one-sided view of the story of the Gospels. She appears to have been struck only by the passages relating to the sorrows and death of our Lord and to have paid no attention to the account of His teaching—teaching in which it is very difficult to find a gospel of despair. The book is an interesting study, and if, as appears from the title-page, it is a first novel, the author with riper experience may do good work.
