Summary:

This, it seems to me, is the most striking quality of Mr. Gerhardi's book: that he has (even in this, his first venture) enough of the true novelist's "objectivity" to focus the two so utterly alien races to whom he belongs almost equally, by birth and bringing-up - the English and the Russian - to sympathize with both, and to depict them for us as they see each other, with the play of their mutual reactions illuminating and animating them all. - Summary from the preface by Edith Wharton
