A Difficult Daughter. By Evelyn Everett Green. (Sunday School Union.)—Lady
Vivian Dynecourt is the "difficult daughter" whom her parents, Lord and Lady Lyon, entrusted, during a forced sojourn abroad, to the care of Dr. and Mrs. Temple, Mrs. Temple being Lady Lyon's sister. The young lady appears on the scene loading a bloodhound by one hand and a cheetah by the other. Her subsequent proceedings are in keeping with this eccentric introduction. She brings, so to speak, a whirlwind into the calm atmosphere of Dr. Temple's family. We must say that some of her proceedings are a little beyond belief—the cheetah itself is a trifle unlikely—but the story is eminently readable, and everything is skilfully worked out in the end to a fitting conclusion.
