A Victorian Gem,
This review is from: Lady Audley's Secret (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
There is a reason why Thackeray and Dickens were big fans of Mary Elizabeth Braddon. This novel is a Victorian gem!
Lucy Graham is a governess until she strikes it lucky and manages to charm Sir Michael Audley into marrying her. Apart from a tempestuous realtioship with her new step-daughter, Alicia, all is quiet at Audley Court until a visit from Sir Michael's neice and his friend George Tallboys.
George suddenly disappears, but there is more to the disappearance than meets the eye, and what is Lady Audley keeping to herself?
Blackmail, possible murder, arson and one of the greatest villanesses I've ever come across, this book has it all.
Suspend all disbelief and enjoy. Highly recommended.
