The central plotline of The Sacrifice of Enid is that the scheming Louise Ormonde has set her sights on Ronald Westlake, son of the mill owner. Jealous of his growing friendship with a young woman called Enid (who, for her own reasons, is going incognito as "Mary Williams"), Louise contrives to frame Ronald for the crime of aiding Enid's convict lover in escaping from Dartmoor Prison.
According to a news item in the Literary, dramatic, and musical notes section of The Author, Vol. XVIII, June 1st, 1908, Mrs Harcourt Roe sold the novel to the Northern Newspaper Syndicate, which generally handled British newspaper syndication. However, for whatever reason it seems only to have seen publication in Australia, in the Adelaide-based Observer, where it ran as a 13-issue serial in the summer of 1909.
