Cutler 25. THE LITTLE MINISTER was the first of his three "Thrums" novels, set in a Scottish weaving town based on his native Kirriemuir, and was his first commercial success. " Set in rural 1840s Scotland, the plot focuses on labor and class issues while telling the story of Gavin Dishart, a staid cleric newly assigned to Thrums' Auld Licht church, and Babbie, a member of the nobility who disguises herself as a gypsy girl in order to interact freely with the local villagers and protect them from her guardian, Lord Rintoul, who wants to keep them under his control. Initially the conservative Dishart is appalled by the feisty girl, but he soon comes to appreciate her inner goodness. Their romantic liaison scandalizes the townspeople, and the minister's position is jeopardized until Dishart's heroism stuns and transforms the hearts of the local villagers." - Wikipedia. Basis of an 1897 play version, five silent film versions, and the classic "talkie" of 1934 starring a young, gorgeous Katherine Hepburn.
