Description

Lucy Graham is a beautiful but impoverished governess when she meets the wealthy widower Sir Michael Audley who, instantly besotted, makes her his wife. Their life at Audley Court is happy and uneventful until the arrival of Sir Michael's nephew Robert with his friend George Talboys, who has recently returned from making his fortune in Australia. When George suddenly vanishes from the house under mysterious circumstances, Robert begins to delve into his friend's past and becomes convinced that Lady Audley may not be as ignorant - or as innocent - as she seems. As compelling as the sensation novels by Wilkie Collins, Lady Audley's Secret (1862) is a disturbing exploration of the dark side of respectable Victorian society, with one of the great villainesses of nineteenth-century literature.

Author Biography

Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835-1915) first burst onto the public scene at the age of eight when she played the role of 'Fairy Pineapple' in a pantomime. In a long career of overwhelming activity she edited magazines and wrote at least seventy-five novels, including such unrevived works as The Octoroon, Publicans and Sinners and Dead-Sea Fruit but also including the phenomenal Lady Audley's Secret which made her, at the age of twenty-seven, rich for life.
