FROM NEW YORK TIMES, SATURDAY BOOK REVIEW, JULY 14, 1906 ... "F. MARION CRAWFORD'S new novel 'Prima Donna' will not have initial publication as a serial before its appearance in book form in the Fall with the Macmillan imprint. As the title indicates, it will continue the adventures of the wonderful soprano, Margaret, and her faithful lover, Lushington -- whom some critics have identified as Melba and Maurice Bernhardt. It may be recalled that the closing chapter of 'Fair Margaret a Portrait,' ended with the soprano's successful debut in Brussels, and an unsuccessful attempt on the part of the King of the Belgians to capture her persons if not to captivate her affections. In Prima Donna we shall also learn more about the mysterious millionaire Greek."
