Content: From a review: "THE RISE OF ROSCOE PAINE," is a little off the beaten track of Mr. Lincoln's novels. To be sure, the characters live down on "the cape," but the chief interest of the story lies not in the quaint humor of the villagers, but in the struggle between Croesus, who is summering there, and Roscoe Paine, gentleman of leisure. The millionaire and his daughter take Roscoe for an uneducated simple native and treat him accordingly, until Roscoe irritates but finally wins the respect of the financier by blocking all his plans. Roscoe's love for the daughter finally brings harmony to both camps and he then begins a career as a business man. It is a pleasing little romance, heightened by some clever business deals and made entertaining by the introduction of the favorite Cape Cod characters. 469 pages plus Publisher's Catalogue, illustrated.
