One Day at a Time. By Blanche E. M. Greve.

(R.T.S.)—This also is another tale of a religions life, too pronounced to our taste, particularly at the commencement, but in all other respects of very superior texture and workmanship. The idea of the love-story is by no means a common one, and the story is developed and told with no little power and skill. The reader, when once fairly in it, will not be content to leave its 270 pages unfinished. The heroine is very charming in connection with and beyond her goodness, and tells her own tale (for it is autobiographical) with equal grace and sprightliness. Two at least out of the three illustrations are pretty.
