This is a very scarce book that has not gotten the attention it deserves. In Volume Two we have much the same personnel as in Volume One; the vicar and his sister Miss Pimpernell; Lady Dasher and her two daughters; Miss Spight and Mawley the curate; Min and Mrs. Clyde; Catch the dog. Having set the scene in Volume One, Hutcheson goes on to weave a beautiful story round the love-affair between the hero, Lorton, and Min, she with the admirable grey eyes. We will not tell you how it fared--you must find that out for yourself. It contains 13, color, period-illustrations. John Conroy Hutcheson was born in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1840, and died in Portsea, England, in late 1896 or early 1897. He wrote about 18 novels, most, though not all, about the sea. The book is altogether in a different style to Hutcheson's later works, which are mostly nautical. Possibly a period of twenty years separates this book from the later ones.
