From the cover: “Were the Victorians as staid and convinced of their rectitude as people now sometimes imagine? Did they realise the implications of the scientific and Industrial Revolution which was transforming England and the world? In this novel Clem, the warm-hearted, independent daughter of an eccentric country clergyman, visits Oxford in the Eighteen-Thirties and makes a friend of John Henry Newman. Though more interested in the people than in the principles of the Oxford Movement, Clem, by way of a love affair, becomes a Catholic about the same time as New- man and retains his friendship to the end of their long lives, which, beginning in the Byronic era, end within sight of this century.”
