I've recently finished 'Lady Audley's Secret' by Mary Elizabeth Braddon and really enjoyed it. I've never heard of her before and wondered if there are other 19thC gems I'm missing out on.
I've read Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Bronte sisters, Jane Austen and loved them all. I can't seem to get on with Thomas Hardy, although I managed to finish 'Far from the Madding Crowd' I didn't really care for it and I gave up on 'Jude the Obscure'.
By the way, they don't have to be English authors!
