A supernatural story that is neither sensational nor lurid, of an intelligence that borrowed human form and brought tragedy in its wake during two years on earth. Jerry marries a woman with no past and the discovery of her origin brings him to the verge of suicide. His closest friend discovers the tragedy, and with Jerry's father succeeds in securing her promise to return to that other sphere. It is an impossible story to convey in a few lines-- it is well told, the interest is sustained, the unreality related skilfully to normal events. A good bet for those who like Poe's work. Has something of the eerie quality of Wells' The Croquet Player. A first novel-- the man bears watching.
