This work, which might be called a companion volume to "Children of the Mist," is a powerful study of contemporary life, religion and art. In its profound analysis of human character, in growth, development and decay, and in its sympathetic delineation of the simpler lives of an ignorant peasantry, it strongly suggests George Eliot's "Adam Bede."
Lying Prophets deals with the fisher folk on the coast of Cornwall and introduces as its dramatis personae the artists' colony at St Ives.
