When Mr. Tryan arrives in Milby, with his disturbingly evangelical and puritan tendencies, the small town is deeply divided in a bitter fight over the suitability of his evening lectures. The proud but desolate Janet Dempster, alcoholic wife of one of Mr. Tryan's most vociferous opponents, delights in the clergyman's persecution--until she unexpectedly finds her own redemption. Written when she was on the brink of her career as a novelist, "Janet's Repentance" foreshadows the themes of Eliot's later work.
