"Something lost behind the ranges, something waiting for you—Go!" That remark by Kipling sums up the philosophy of Beatrice Grimshaw. Since her girl-

hood days, when she waa classical lec turer at Bedford Women's College, there   lias always been for her eomethiug lost behind the ranges, something waiting for her to study. Impelled by the spirit of adventure she has roved the Pacific from shore to shore, darting in her own cutter from island to island, and finally settling down in somewhat feudal style among the natives of Papua. She knows the Pacific, and Papua. especially, probably better   than any other writer, and most of her books are centred around what she knows so thoroughly. Mies Grimshaw's latest book is entitled "My South Sea Sweet heart" (Hurst and Blackett, Ltd.) Itr tells the story of Dara Hamilton, * girl to whom civilisation was aiore a name tk??.|r«Wy. At ibe age of fourteen years, just before her father's death, she was married to a boy of her own age, ldike ensure ther future on the island. Then came Captain Harry England, "the wickedest man _jn the Pacific, who fascinated Data, and the conflict between Luke and England is a deadly one, the result being romantic and original. The native Queen Lalua, her magic-making- handmaiden," and other mywterious personage*, all add to the romance of a story that will appeal to people who have grown tired of the uu vulity of so many of the modern novels.
