When the solitary, pious Mr Crumpton dies, he leaves his house in the beautiful village of Wood Leighton to the narrator's family. The vicar of Wood Leighton, the Rev. Hugh Somers, tells them the story of the Curse of Denborough Park, by which General Dubois revenged himself on Sir Harbottle Grimstone. The vicar's daughter, Elizabeth, then relates the sad story of 'The Sinner's Grave,' a salutary account of adultery and its consequences. From the author of the poem 'The Spider and the Fly,' Wood Leighton is an unusual combination of the joyful and the tragic, and is a charming addition to any bookshelf.
