Lady Audley's Secret

Lady Audley's Secret - Mary Elizabeth Braddon Poor Lady Audley. I felt terrible for her! Juicy gothic tale of a woman cornered into doing something quite regrettable, something many of us would do in the same circumstance. She pays of course, as most women in these Victorian dramas do. Poor dear. This is often compared to Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White, but I found it more readable.
