The Scarlet Shawl (1874) is the first and the slightest of the three published early novels, but in some ways the most charming.  It is a tale of how the young and likeable Nora loses her admirer and would-be lover, Percival.  She nearly drifts into a loveless marriage, only to be rescued by luck and her own last remnants of common sense.   There is humour, too, in the character of the hopeless, conceited Wootton who fancies that he will win Nora in marriage, but fears her reaction when she sees him without his cosmetic aids that maintain his youthful appearance.The novel gathers strength as it proceeds and Jefferies shakes off the awkward self-consciousness that mars the early chapters, and his personality begins to dominate. There are several passages of power and beauty.  One can see Jefferies preparing himself to be the great countryside writer that he later becomes.

Published in 2009 in paperback with an introduction by Andrew Rossabi.
