In this book the Author has handled a difficult subject with the utmost of delicacy consistent with perfect frankness. While telling his story fearlessly, he does so without sensationalism. With nobility of manner and passionate sincerity he relates one of the sordid tragedies common to our great cities; but the story is told with such reserve and such impartiality that the zeal of the sociologist is never allowed to destroy the delicacy of the artist. Throughout the book there predominates the Greek idea of Fate; but there is also something better, the hope of the ultimate amelioration of the evils that the book so aptly describes.
