Rita: The Mystery of a Turkish Bath, v.1, 12 November 2008

The Mystery of a Turkish Bath (1888)
By Rita [Eliza Margaret Jane Gollan], (1850–1938).
Produced by Nick Hodson of London, England, for Project Gutenberg.


A sensational novelette, set in a ladies’ Turkish bath at an English spa town. Many mysteries are noted (what does an elegant lady wear in a Turkish bath? How might she keep her hair in curl?) but the plot centres on a mysterious, beautiful stranger, who spouts spiritualism, theosophy and the law of karma to the steaming ladies. A tragic tale unfolds…

Hmmm, I assembled this as by Eliza Margaret J Humphreys. I think we have the same book. I'll download yours and check the text.

Don

Just checked: It's the same book. I love your cover, by the way. On mine, I used the DJ from the hardback.

I got mine from Project Gutenberg, which as "Rita" as the author. The Internet archive also has it with the pseudonymous Rita, as does this site:
http://www.athelstane.co.uk/emgollan/turkbath/about.htm
which also has some more information about the author. I think it is the source of the other versions too.
The lady may well have married and changed her name.
