Most modern novelists are able to spin a good yarn out of two men and a maid, and Mr. Eric Bohn is no exception to the rule. Dr. Hartman and Robert Thornton loved the same girl, but Hartman, coming second into the field, thought it dishonourable to further his own interests, though there was no previous understanding between his rival and Winifred Finlayson. When, however, Thornton's business failed (chiefly owing to the machinations of the villain of the story, Thomas Pettigrew) and he was compelled to seek his fortune in a distant place, Hartman was assailed by temptation, and he learned that, did he so choose it, he could win the love of the woman for whom he would willingly have died. By nobility of character, strength of will, and persistent self-sacrifice he overcame all temptation, and as the book closes we have the pleasure of seeing him act as best man at the wedding of his friend and rival. The plot is trivial to the point of banality, but the book is well worth reading for all that. Mr. Bohn has a delicacy in the delineation of the nobler phases of human nature that more than compensates for any lack of dramatic ability, and his attitude towards his fellow men is so kindly, so shrewdly humorous, and so tender that it is a real pleasure to have made his acquaintance.
