This novel deals with the appalling situation of a dead girl brought back to life by means of a surgical operation which restores the heart action, but resuscitates vitality after the soul has quit the body. The life of the girl after actual physical resurrection becomes one of impulsive depravity, and the change is as vivid as the sudden lapse of a normal brain into active dementia. Though scientifically improbable, the plot has moments of stern intellectual appeal.

d,--and now I'm glad he did. After what I saw at home I about made up my mind not to let any man come near me, but--but somehow he's different. He wouldn't act like father, or like my sister's husband, I know; he's the kind that seems to think a girl ought to be taken care of; that's nice, when you never had anybody that thought that in all your life, isn't it?"

"It's very nice, Maria," replied Lola, quite touched by the tone of real affection in Maria's voice. "I am sure that it is the nicest thing in the world." As she spoke a ring of the bell interrupted them, and Maria, hastily putting the precious letter in her apron pocket, went to the door and admitted a shabby little woman and a delicate child.

"Good morning, Mrs. Mooney," said Lola, as she caught sight of them. "Good morning, Nellie! Come right in. Tell father, Maria!" she continued, and as Maria left the room she bent over little Nellie and kissed her tenderly, then turned to the anxious mother and did her best to put her at her ease.<
