Love Eternal (H. Eider Haggard).
If this book had been published anonymously, ) no one would have thought of ascribing it to < (he author of "She," "Allan Quatermain," and > all the other clever stories which made the >
name famous years ago. The unwisdom of the )
< obbler who does not stick to his last has )
been once more proved, as it always is when ( this writer forsakes his own domain and J attempts to write of civilised life and civilised >
people. Not that all the characters in this j boob are civilised in the full meaning of the ; word, since the two fathers of the loving couple ; are about as savage as they could be and re
tain their liberty. Not content with attempt- ) ing to write about socicty, the author feels ; that he must follow the prevailing fashion and 1 introduce psychic thought, making the hero a medium, a psyehometrist, and several other things. The lovers are separated for many years by reason of some rather clumsy machin ery in the plot. and. after four days' happiness, are again divided, till we gather that they are together again on the "other side."
