Leonora of Five Towns is thinking, on her fortieth birthday, that she has lived a humdrum, unromantic life in quiet wealth with her three daughters and a husband from whom she has grown apart. Romance comes to her when her husband's former partner's son returns from America, a successful and dominant man. How he and Leonora conquer the evil tendencies of their affection and control the new tumult of their hearts is most interestingly told. To find a character in a modern novel whose ideas of right over wrong rule, and rule so strongly that even when she, by the death of her husband is, in a sense, free, she still makes her inclinations and emotions subserve her sense of duty, and to find a man who agrees with her--this is a worthy literary novelty.
