Phillpotts, Eden: Lying Prophets. V1. 4 June 2012

Lying Prophets
by Eden Phillpotts (1897)

Eden Phillpotts (4 November 1862 – 29 December 1960) was an English author, poet and dramatist. He was born in India, educated in Plymouth, Devon, and worked as an insurance officer for 10 years before studying for the stage and eventually becoming a writer. - Wikipedia

Synopsis:
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.

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
