Book Excerpt: 
. . .ll not doubt her," he thought, as he walked onward in the moonlight, too proud and too honourable to linger in order to hear anything more that Miss Graham might have to say. "I will not doubt the wife I love so fondly, because idle tongues are already busy with her fair fame. Already! We have not been married two months, and already evil tongues drop the poison of doubt into my ear. It seems too cruel! But I will watch her with this man. Her ignorance of the world may have caused her to be more familiar with him than the rigid usages of society would permit. And yet she is generally so dignified, so reserved—apt to err on the side of coldness rather than of warmth. I must watch!—I must watch!"

Starts Big, Ends Small

Two different mysteries, three villains, with one of them really being of the darkest dye, three murders (maybe, I forgot some), one suicide, the kidnapping of a child, three strong Victorian women – one of them uncommonly tragic, another quite a Becky-Sharp-like trickster –...more

A cracking good story of a rocky path from rags to riches. It features plenty of intrigue, abduction, deceit and murder. There are not just one but two merciless villains. The heroine Anna, is raised by a common criminal, marries a rich man, is the victim of intrigue and abduction, loses everythi...more
