Description:

Mr. Locke is characteristically colourful in this story of a self-made boot manufacturer of Puritanical ancestry and scrupulous honesty. During the War, Joshua Fendick grows rich against his own will, and finds entrance into social circles wholly new to him. In especial he comes under the influence of Robins Dale, a sculptor, who is supporting a worthless husband abroad. Robins "mothers" Joshua and induces him to try his own hand with the chisel. Thus he meets Susan Keene, a beautiful young "model," with whom he falls desperately in love. Susan has a tragic history, and Robins and Joshua, out of pity and affection, "adopt" her. Ultimately, she promises to become a great singer, and Joshua, after a stern battle with himself, renounces his own desire for her. Joshua's other adventures in a world alien to him, and his final escape from it, are described in a swift narrative that is often far fetched, but is at any rate tensely virile.
