Description:

According to the introduction of this book, Mrs. Strachey’s grandmother left a box of records and documents having to do with incidents in the notorious evangelistic movements of a century ago. That was a period when dozens of religious cults, some of them with healing aspects, were competing for public popularity. The “Holy Rollers” sect is the prominent one in the novel by Mrs. Strachey. The story is grim, sordid, and somewhat salacious but at the same time instructive and of interest. The story of the cultist leader in this story might well be the story of Benjamin of the House of David, or of any one of a half-dozen similar cultist leaders. The reader who wishes novels with a purpose and who is not too insistent on perfection of literary quality will find Mrs. Strachey’s novel well worthwhile.--Book Review.
