Miss Hargreaves

(1940)
A novel by

 
When Norman Huntley and Henry Beddow, sheltering from the rain in a dismal Irish church, placate the sexton by telling him that they knew of his beloved pastor (now departed), there is no reason to suppose that there is any harm in the invention. It is purely for their own amusement that they create a fictional mutual friend: an elderly lady, Miss Hargreaves. The sexton does not doubt her existence. And she gradually assumes a fully-rounded character in the imaginings of the two young men as they while away their holiday in expanding the details of her life. It is merely a continuation of their little joke when they write to invite her to visit them back in their hometown. It is something of a surprise when Miss Hargreaves accepts their invitation. And their disbelief turns to confusion and horror as, one evening soon afterwards, her train pulls into the station.
