A Costly Freak

Back to the Maxwell Gray (Mary Gleed Tuttiett) project: I just read her 1894 novel A Costly Freak.

It concerns an impoverished and rather naive curate, who finds £30 inside his Bible and believes it's an apport put there by God.

A Costly Freak is discussed in my book A Wren-like Note: the life and works of Maxwell Gray (Mary Gleed Tuttiett). See the official site,

  1. "...with extensive pathetic fallacy in her descriptions of sunsets..."
    "...It would be almost impossible to read the book to yourself but read aloud it is awfully funny. Just full of padding."

    Don't forget all those extra adjectives!
