WOOD NYMPH

The Devonshire country once again in the story of a child of twelve, passionately devoted to the forest, who, because of a cruel stepmother, decides to kill herself and is saved by a young woodsman. She becomes his adoring slave -- a serving maid for four years, during which time his marriage goes from bad to worse. At last he gets a divorce, and the two --welded by their love of the forest -- marry and live happily ever after. The old fairy tale pattern, even down to the cruel stepmother, a full background of well defined landscape, a pseudo Devonshire dialect which retards the story. Slight appeal to those who still follow him. Limited.
