"The story of a younger son, Derek Biount, sincere and manly to the core, and as full of tenderness as he is of courage and English pride. In contrast to him is his older brother, Van, prospective Lord Avonleigh, aristocrat, lover of ease, of faultless manners, no vices except a slight failing in moral courage, and accepting his lot in life unconditionally. Derek experiments and blunders and is misunderstood. But old Lord Avonleigh comes to understand and love his younger son in a direct ratio as he begins to mistrust the older. The war comes to unsettle many things, families and fortunes. Enemy aliens spin their intrigues, to which Van's love of ease make him an easy prey, and when the story ends with the old Lord's death, Van has indeed inherited the estate, but Derek his love and his blessing." (Book Review Digest, 1919). Bookseller Inventory # C1014MH
