FOUR EXTRA DAUGHTERS. By Joanna Maconeehy. (Chatto and Windus. 75.

6d.).—Mrs. Bracken could not decide how to apportion 280,000 among her four unwanted daughters. She ultimately left it all to the unmoral Juliet, who gives a sensational twist to the end of the story. A bitter, amusing, competent book in which everyone is expertly unhappy.
