"A spirited tale concerned with the early rise of Methodism about the middle of the last century." - Review of Reviews, Vol. VIII. (1893).

"The central figure of this story of the days of Wesley and Whitehead [sic], Tom Heron of Sax, is a wild, dare-devil young blacksmith, who falls under the influence of an itinerant methodist preacher, and whose stormy religious experiences are described in detail. There are many characters and somewhat varied action in the story, which aims especially to show the religious condition of England in the first days of Methodism, and to make clear the points of difference and agreement existing between the Established Church and the followers of Wesley." - The Publisher's Weekly, Nov. 11, 1893, p. 701.
