This is her last great effort, and it is a remarkably interesting one. The plot is a candid embodiment of great ideas and action."-Troy Times.
The scene is laid in one of the suburbs of London. The insight into certain phases of social life which it gives is curious. The heroine 'Beatrice' is a striking character. The plotting Frenchman Gervoise is also drawn with consummate art. In a word, there is more real sturdy stuff in Beatrice than in a score of the current novels of the day."- Albany Evening Journal.
