Harold’s Friends; or, The New Rector of Greythorpe (book #120)

C A Burnaby, nd but BL earliest edition is 1890. The inscription is dated 1907.

Book cover

Inscription - London Road A G Church, Young Women's Bible Class, To Miss Kate Smith for regular attendance, April 1907

I like this bit of unashamed foreshadowing at the point Harold is kidnapped by gypsies:

‘I hope Harold got home before the fog began,’ he [the rector, Herbert] thought; ‘but of course he must have come back long ago. He will laugh at my losing my way in the garden.’
No, Herbert Westlake! it will be many a long and weary day before you again listen to that merry laugh, and gaze on that bright face you love so well. There are troubled waters to pass through, and severe tests of faith to endure, before you again press to your heart the boy who, unknown to yourself, has become part of your very life!
