MONFORT HALL .

THE HOUSEHOLD OF BOUVERIE .

A DOUBLE WEDDING; or, How She Was Won .

HESTER HOWARD'S TEMPTATION .

From Gail Hamilton, author of "Gala Days" etc.

"'The Household of Bouverie' is one of those books that pluck out all your teeth, and then dare you to bite them. Your interest is awakened at once in the first chapter, and you are whirled through in a lightning express train that leaves you no opportunity to look at the little details of wood, and lawn, and river. You notice two or three little peculiarities of style one or two 'bits' of painting and then you pull on your seven leagued boots and away you go."

From George Ripley's Review of "The Household of Bouverie" in Harper's Magazine .

"'The Household of Bouverie,' by Mrs. Warfield, is a wonderful book. I have read it twice the second time more carefully than the first and I use the term 'wonderful,' because it best expresses the feeling uppermost in my mind, both while reading and thinking it over. As a piece of imaginative writing, I have seen nothing to equal it since the days of Edgar A. Poe, and I doubt whether he could have sustained himself and the readers through a book half the size of the 'Household of Bouverie.' I have literally hurried through it by my intense sympathy, my devouring curiosity It was more than interest. I read everywhere between the courses of the hotel table, on the boat, in the cars until I had swallowed the last line. This is no common occurrence with a veteran romance reader like myself."

WILSON, " Isle of Palms ."

"Then hold her Strictly confined in sombre banishment, And Doubt not but she will ere long, full gladly, Her freedom purchase at the price you name."

"No, subtle snake! It is the baseness of thy selfish mind, Full of all guile, and cunning, and deceit, That severs us so far, and shall do ever ."

"Despair shall give me strength where is the door? Mine eyes are dark! I cannot find it now. O God! protect me in this awful pass!"
