The Brothers. A NoveL By Anna H. Drury. 2 vols.

(Chapman and Hall.)—Something of a sensation novel by a clever woman, whose

natural taste inclines her to the quiet and domestic drawing-room novel. It is good on the whole, and what is a great merit in a novel, improves instead of degenerating as the story draws towards its close.
