"An art novel of great power and passion The situations are well contrived, and the workings of strong feelings well managed. The story is able and absorbing, and the development of Ella's character is powerfully conceived." The British Quarterly .

"The Translator may claim credit, not only of having selected a good subject, but of having handled it well The situations in this story being true and unforced, are more effective than any amount of fine writing and strained invention could make them. We have no difficulty in believing in the individualities of the personages." The Queen .

"The same power, however, of giving reality to his word portraits which delighted us so much in Herr Werner's former production again makes itself felt in this one, as well as a certain aptness in choosing felicitous incidents The story is admirably told, and its conclusion exceedingly dramatic." Morning Post .

CHAPTER I.

"I had always been a dreamer, and an enthusiast," began Blanden, "and even when at school I cherished bold designs; I would emigrate to Madagascar, an island to which I had taken a peculiar fancy, and did not deem it impossible there to win a crown for myself.

"I always remained aloof from the noisy amusements of my companions.
