Ed―since transcribing this book, I have uncovered evidence that leads me to doubt that Isa Craig was in fact its author.  The COPAC National, Academic, and Specialist Library Catalogue attributes "Deepdale Vicarage" to Isa Craig-Knox, but in her autobiography "Leaflets from My Life: A Narrative Autobiography" (1888), Mary Kirkby claims that she and her sister Elizabeth were joint authors of this title and also of "Mark Warren" (see reference in the title page above).  Either way, "Deepdale Vicarage" is an enjoyable read.  Several other titles in the COPAC index attributed to Isa Craig are probably also from the pens of one or both of the Kirby sisters.
