No novel of the war period made a more profound impression than did Miss Sinclair's "The Tree of Heaven." The announcement of a new book by this distinguished author is therefore most welcome. A woman's life, her thoughts, sensations and emotions directly presented, without artificial narrative or analysis, without autobiography. The main interest lies in Mary Olivier's search for Reality, her relations with her mother, father and three brothers, and her final passage from the bondage of infancy, the conflicts of childhood and adolescence, the disenchantments (and other drawbacks) of maturity, to the freedom, peace and happiness of middle-age. The period covered is from 1865 when Mary is two years old to 1910 when she is forty-seven.
