First of all, let me start out by saying Lord Dunsany writes the most beautiful English prose I've ever written. His novels are worth reading for that alone. This one is more 'modern' than his earlier fairy-tale/fantasies, being reminiscent of the sort of 19th-century English literature of Dickens, Bronte, Conan Doyle, etc. However, his plot sets him apart: The novel tells of a country priest (or vicar, or whatever they call them in England!) who is disturbed by the growing signs of paganism in his parish. It's not a fast action/thriller, more of a quiet story of a subtle but major cultural/religious change. Still, for those who find such ideas interesting (and enjoy a well-written book), it doesn't drag and carries emotional conviction.
