The Young Mrs. Meigs proved that Elizabeth Corbett had an uncanny perception of the mental and emotional processes of women much older than herself. Now comes Mr. Underhill, and in him she gets under the skin of an older man, a man at that indiscriminate age between fifty and sixty, neither old nor young and beginning to doubt the possibility of changing the pattern. This is the story of a man who rebelled against the established order, and found adventure and romance in so doing. The House Across the River had a good sale. This is a better book, and should have a wider market. Don't think that market is all for the oldsters -- for there is youth in this book, and it's a good story.
