Description

Lucas Malet is the pseudonym of Mary St. Leger Kingsley, a Victorian writer and the daughter of Charles Kingsley (author of The Water Babies.) Deadham Hard: A Romance, originally published in 1919, is the story of the occupants of Tandy's Castle, the Verity Family, and specifically young Tom Verity and his enchanting cousin, Damaris. "A peculiar magic resides in running water, as every student of earth-lore knows. There is high magic, too, in the marriage of rivers, so that the spot where two mingle their streams is sacred, endowed with strange properties of evocation and of purification." The Veritys live in just such a place, a perfect setting for a classic romance.

Author Biography

Lucas Malet was the pseudonym of Mary St. Leger Kingsley (1852 - 1931), a Victorian novelist. Of her novels, The Wages of Sin (1891) and The History of Sir Richard Calmady (1901) were especially popular. Malet scholar Talia Schaffer notes that she was "widely regarded as one of the premier writers of fiction in the English-speaking world" at the height of her career, but her reputation declined by the end of her life and today she is rarely read or studied. At the height of her popularity she was "compared favorably to Thomas Hardy and Henry James, with sales rivaling Rudyard Kipling."
