Baring-Gould, Sabine: Kitty Alone; A Tale of Three Fires. v1. 13 Dec 2021

The story of a quiet, but intelligent girl who was misunderstood by almost everyone she knew. A mystery/romance with more emphasis on the mystery and much detail about the rural community and the times she lived in, with nice touches of humor.

Kitty is very much “alone.” But when the son of the richest farmer in the neighborhood falls head over heels for the pretty girl, it seems that the fortunes of Kitty Alone are about to change. Or maybe not — for Rose Ash has marked John out as her own and is keen on defending her claim, while Kitty’s thoughts center more on the stars and the tides (and the new schoolmaster) than on the ardent boy next door.

(—adapted from Librivox synopsis)

============
The Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould (28 January 1834 – 2 January 1924) was an Anglican priest, antiquarian and folklorist, novelist, and eclectic scholar. One of the most prolific and popular writers of the late-Victorian period, he wrote more than 150 books and contributed countless magazine articles. His folkloric studies resulted in The Book of Were-Wolves (1865), one of the most frequently cited studies of lycanthropy; followed by numerous volumes on other arcane subjects. He is remembered particularly as a writer of hymns, the best-known being “Onward, Christian Soldiers.”
