Eleanor's Victory

M. E. Braddon

Book Overview: 

Only 15-years-old, Eleanor Vane is very happy with her lot: educated in an expensive finishing school in Paris, the apple of her father's eye, and disposed to be kind. Of course there are things missing: she does not remember her mother who died when she was young. But at least she has her father... Until he unexpectedly dies. Now Eleanor is at the mercy of her half-siblings who were never in touch with her, and the rest of the world who would consider her an orphaned beggar. Sent to work as a lady's companion to an old friend of her late father's, Eleanor might, just might, be able to win a respectable place in society. This novel is also famous for being one of the first Victorian novels with a female detective

Eleanor, a beautiful and motherless young teenager, the only child of her spendthrift father’s second marriage, is obsessed with trying to find the man who cheated him out of a large sum of money, leading to his suicide. Her half-siblings help her grudgingly and sparingly, because of their bitternes

An interesting book, set in a much seedier world than we normally see in these Victorian novels. Eleanor's quest for revenge for her father's death makes a refreshing change to the usual 'quest for a husband' plot.
