Four Novels Which No Lover of
Distinctive Fiction Should Miss

Life says:

"A story warranted to induce the most rejuvenating of moods in all but the most case-hardened minds."

Life says:

"It is a thrilling story, quite apart from the fact that it is a confession. And it is a confession which rather takes one's breath away."

Book News Monthly calls it:

"An amazingly tender and beautiful story, in which smiles and tears get a good deal mixed."


says the Chicago News:

"has the rare faculty of making unusual events seem as plausible as ordinary ones, and of finding in ordinary people something absolutely new and interesting."

Frances Hodgson Burnett's
T. Tembarom

"A modern fairy story without fairies; a romance without knights and dragons, but with all the delightful qualities of fairy stories and romances.

"Little Ann, Lady Joan, the Duke, and all the other characters stand out with intense personalities.


"The fascinated reader wishes it longer. No one stops to consider whether it is probable or not; no one cares.' -Christian Endeavor World.

"I have read the entire story with keen interest.
Merwin's portrayal of character is convincing
and realistic, and his familiarity with the China
Coast and Japanese atmosphere is unquestion-


"In its essence the book is romantic, in much
the same whimsical vein that Locke's books
are romantic. . .

"I derived a keen delight from Mr. Merwin's
buoyant, diverting, delicately ironic pages. The
book . . . is eminently wholesome, clean,
and sane; and I wish we might have more of
the same order."
