Overview

When out of sorts with the world, especially with the world of city-life, such a book as Walter Prichard Eaton's " The Idyl of Twin Fires" may be taken as both a sedative and an alternative. "Twin Fires" is the name a weary instructor in English, escaped to a New England hillside farm, gives to his place on the suggestion of a girl doctor of philology who comes to a neighboring boarding-house. How the old house is made better and lovelier than new, how the landscape is made beautiful, the garden glorified, and the farm made reasonably productive, constitutes half the idyl; the feminine doctor of philology provides the better half.
