READABLE NOVELS.—The Cypress Tree. By Sophie Cole. (Mills and Boon.

78. 6d. net.)—One of the author's usual delightful stories of London. The Enoch Arden theme, though it has, of course, become almost commonplace during the war, is cleverly developed.—Ward Take. By E. Chivers Davies. (Lane. 5s. net.)—The sketches are rather trivial, but as a description of the hard lot of V.A.D. nursing members this book should receive attention both at the War Office and at the Headquarters of the Red Cross Society.
