V.

LUCIA, HUGH, AND ANOTHER. By Mrs J. H. Needell, Author

of Julian Karslake's Secret.' 3 vols. post 8vo, 25s. 6d. “The novel has a grasp and force of character-drawing and a dramatic energy which place it far in front of anything Mrs Needell has done before, and in front of most of the novels of the day....... The story lives. The passion in it vibrates through every scene between the principal actors, yet the feeling is never forced por exaggerated....... The story is one of deep interest and strongly original power.Daily News.

“ It would not be very easy to find in modern fiction a more skilful and subtle study of character than that which Mrs Needell bas given us in this very original conception.

..The essential qualities of a good work of fiction this novel certainly has. Not the least is a singularly vigorous, and as the expression is still, we suppose, complimentary, masculine style."-Pall Mall Gazette.
