Incarnation Radio Hour
The Redhill Sisterhood by Catherine Louisa Pirkis
Victorian sleuth Loveday Brooke, investigates some nuns who seem to be forsaking their vows for burglary.
In 1893, Catherine Louisa Pirkis (1841-1910) wrote a series of short stories featuring a character who has been dubbed ‘the female Sherlock Holmes’, the lady detective Loveday Brooke. Miss Brooke is in her thirties and began detecting as the result of an event by which she was “thrown upon the world penniless and all but friendless”. With no way to earn a living she chose this particular line of work, which had the effect of cutting her off from her friends and original position in society.
In ‘The Redhill Sisterhood,’ Victorian sleuth Loveday Brooke, investigates an order of nuns who seem to be forsaking their vows for burglary. Sister Monica has rented a house in fever-haunted Paved Court in Redhill, probably not the best location for the Sisterbood’s home for crippled orphans. The Sisters take children begging around local villages each day and strange to relate, burglaries seem to follow in their tracks. Are the nuns guilty of this crime?

We are also excited about launching our, “Sunset Community Music | Arts” initiative, where you can enjoy mostly free (occasionally, donations or a small fee may be requested) concerts and programs, produced and performed by members of the local community. If you are interested in performing as part of this program, please contact us at 415.564.2324 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
