A rather understated - let's call it subtle - supernatural horror. I really like that Benson treats Spiritualism, and the door it opens to Satanic oppression, seriously but without hysteria. The author was a Catholic convert and Roman Catholic priest, which I think accounts for his sane portrayal of the Satanic phenomenon. For all the darkness inherent in the subject, there is a lot of light and beauty in the story. That is largely because of the character of Maggie - a strong and sensible Roman Catholic. She is the adopted daughter of Laurie Baxter's mother. Laurie is a young man who dabbles in Spiritualism and finds more than he bargained for. This is a very good story. I only found the spiritual climax rather truncated. In the Epilogue I thought Maggie came across as wishy-washy, considering how strong her character had been up to that point.

The writing would have been marvelous in the early 1900s when it was written, but now it sounds stilted. I was shocked at one sentence that was over 130 words! It’s also written by a Catholic priest, so you have some idea how Spiritualism is viewed. At one point, the reader is told that anyone dabbling in Spiritualism is doomed unless they are Catholic.
Laurie (Laurence) is a gadabout young man who is searching for something. He’s gone from Anglican to Catholic, from priesthood to the law, from considering his adopted sister as the object of his affection to falling in love with the grocer’s daughter. His mother despairs of him finding his true path.
When the object of his affection – Amy – dies, Laurie is inconsolable. Then he meets a friend of his mother’s who is into Spiritualism. Though Mrs. Stapleton and Lady Laura, Laurie meets Mr. Vincent, a medium who believes Laurie is a truly gifted medium.
There are long passages that could have used serious editing to make them shorter. By the end, I was anxious to finish and get on to the next book in my to-read pile.

Very interesting take on what happens while dabbling in the occult. It takes place in 1901 so things were quite different. I did appreciate Maggie, and here strength in facing things that she didn't believe in. She had courage and love. Love is the most important weapon. Very engrossing read. :)
Kekinos
Interesting horror book from a lesser known author about what can befall someone who chooses to dabble in the occult. Well worth the read and can't hardly do better with this version.
