This novel was made into a movie called The Devil’s Own starring Joan Fontaine as a plucky little school teacher, Miss Mayfield, who discovers dark secrets in a small English village.

The image shows one of Miss Mayfield’s students, Ethel Rigby, being presented as the Bride to “the Master” in a Halloween ritual.
