Far to Seek. By Maud Diver. (Blackwood. Ss. 6d. net.)—

It is interesting to read Mrs. Diver's account of the true situation in India expressed in terms of fiction. She transposes an outbreak which really took place in another place to the city of Lahore, but her descriptions of the events of recent years are otherwise true to fact. The hero of the book is the outcome of a successful marriage between a high-caste Indian woman and an English squire with artistic tendencies. The warring currents in Roy Sinclair's nature are well described, and the admirers of this author's work will be interested in meeting once more some of the characters whose acquaintance they have made in Mrs. Diver's former novels.
