Miss Lawrence in each of her books demonstrates once again the fact that the world in general likes to pick out the mote in the brother's eye. She is adept at selecting her thesis and writing a commonplace story of commonplace people around it, wrapping her little sermon in cotton wool and telling a story that half the world will recognize as fitting, at some point, the other half of the world. The present volume presents in story form, various aspects of the servant problem. When one finishes, one feels for a few hours desperately self-conscious in dealing with one's own phase, and then dismisses it as not pertinent --but --. Rental libraries chiefly.
