Princess Amelia. By Carola Oman. (Fisher Unwin. 7s. 6d. net.)—George

III. and his Court are the subject of this novel, which reminds The present writer of the description given by one of those personages who are true "links with the past ' of how her parents used to watch the old King walk- ing with his daughters on the terrace at Windsor and how at the end of each turn the Princesses curtsied deeply to their father. The novelist gives a very different account of the circumstances of Princess Amelia's unfortunate love affair from that which the reader will have been accustomed to read in the pages of history. Altogether a vivid and attractive picture of life in the eighteenth century.
