Here is a contemporary review:

Lying Prophets, A Novel, By Eden Phillpotts.
New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company. 495 pp.

This is a thrilling, tragical love story, into whose warp is woven the woof of lying prophets by the hand of a skillful master. The leading characters are Joan Tregenza, her sailor lover, Joe Noy, and John Barrow, a painter, whose materialism appeals to the artless but illiterate Joan, resulting in a passionate friendship between them. An enraged, bigoted father and a jealous step-mother furnish strong dramatic action, while a fond uncle assists in the pathetic interlacing of the various scenes. The story revolves around the untutored pessimism of Joan and the extreme optimism of Barrow. It is one of the strongly written books of to-day, to appreciate which one must read it carefully with all its details. -- Journal of Education, Boston University, April 21, 1898
