'The White House,' Athenaeum, 8 December 1906.

'Miss Braddon has not lost her old cunning in weaving an interesting story, though she seems to have abandoned those frankly sensational methods which, as some of us can testify, imparted a 'fearful joy' to the childhood of a generation now mature. Her latest heroine is an heiress forbidden by her father's will to marry, as is frequently the fate of heiresses in fiction. The particular form of complication resulting in this case seems to us, however, original, and the solution of the difficulty is such as would occur to most people in actual life. The book has a wide range, and deals in a lively manner with many topics of the day.'
