A close-knit society lives under the strain of conformity. When this novel was first published in 1918 the book evoked the same reactions many people imagine only happened with Satanic Verses; it was publicly burned in the village where MacNamara lived and he was forced to leave. The author's powerful study of a rural community haunts readers' minds and imagination.
