Harvest, by John Strange Winter, author of ' Booties' Baby,' and other pleasing works. Joseph Braithwaito, Dunedin.

The title chosen by the author affords no clue whatever to the very interesting story, graphically told in some 206 pages. It is a story of reason triumphant over passion. The heroine stands pre-eminently a portrait of a noble, high-minded, talented, and lovely woman, subjected to trials through the aristocratic neglect of her Bole relative, her grandfather, and to temptations through the selfish passion of a lover. Gifted as an artist, she achieves fame and competence through her own efforts, conquers her grandfather's prejudices, secures his admiration and esteem, rejects with scorn her unworthy lover, and reaps the harvest--a wounded heart. Not a page is dull throughout the book. Every character is well drawn, and the plot flows on naturally and without exaggeration. The whole tone of the story is healthy ; its tendency ib to enlist the sympathy of all female readers, and j;o dot Bpfo're them a picture model' for moral imitation of a higb-p'rinciplpd, splfcontrolled woman, capable of solt-sacriflpe, and prepared to endure all things far the eako of honor and virtue, A generation of suoh women would regenerate the world.
