In an atmosphere as individual and full of color as that of the old manor-houses in Russian novels, Miss Cather unfolds this romance of the old west in her book, "A Lost Lady;" not the west of the pioneer this time, but of the railroad aristocracy that grew up when the great transcontinental lines were being built across the plains, in her new book to be published this month by Alfred A. Knopf. A whole epoch lives again in the little group of people so wonderfully pictured here; in this story of an incorruptable man and the beautiful woman who was his wife, and of the house in which their moving drama took place. In every page there is a melancholy beauty, a thrilling pathos, it underlies the easy brilliance of the writting, the vivacity with which Miss Cather gives us all the idiosyncracies of that lavish, generous, careless era. Through the whole story one figure stands out with irresistible fascination-the figure of Marian Forrester, full of feminine mystery and charm, inscrutable in her weakness and her reckless courage. She is one of Miss Cathers greatest triumps."
