A Sweet Sinner (1897) is a novel by Hume Nisbet. Published at the height of his career as a leading ghost story writer of the Victorian era, A Sweet Sinner is a tale of romance and temptation written in the tradition of the sensation novel. Largely unknown by today's audience, Hume Nisbet was a versatile writer whose experiences as an artist and traveler inform his wide-ranging body of work. "Miss Kate Keath is her name, the only child and heiress of a wealthy and retired Australian squatter, who for the past twelve months has taken up his abode in the suburbs of his most ancient, picturesque, and historical Castletown. Miss Kate was a native of New South Wales, and till her fifteenth year had passed all her days in that sunny climate..." After an idyllic youth in Australia, Miss Kate Keath moves to Scotland to complete her education. Although she shows little promise as a painter, her teacher Jamie Glen finds himself drawn to her remarkable beauty and endeavors to show patience to her always. At her family's castle in the heather-streaked highlands, their lesson is interrupted by the sudden arrival of Havelock Gordon, a handsome young man with mysterious intentions and palpable contempt for Jamie. This edition of Hume Nisbet's A Sweet Sinner is a classic of Victorian fiction reimagined for modern readers.
