Jeanneton's Work. By C. A. Jones. (Wells Gardner, Darton, and

Co.)—This "Chronicle of Breton Life" is a story of the old regime. Jeanneton is a farmer's daughter, and being taken up by the great people at the Castle of Kerleonik, is not a little spoilt by their favour. She loses a faithful lover of her own class. Then comes in, to bring her to better thought, the care of a little orphan to whom she stands godmother. This orphan is Jeanneton's work in life. It is a pretty little story, well put together, and brought round at last to a satis- factory ending.
