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 Wo...

I would have liked this better if the author hadn't felt the need to contrive a happily ever after ending.

Lady Audley has a mysterious past and this is all about how she's willing to keep it from coming out. It's an interesting read and I really did enjoy how George Talboys uncovers the evidence.

I've read my fill of mystery/suspense stories and I must say that this was one of the better ones, in my opinion. Although it was published in the mid 1800's, the story line still felt fresh.

So, this woman in the Victorian club specializes in lesser-known female Victorian authors and she recommended a bunch of books to me. Neat thing to specialize in, huh? I realize some of these are less lesser-known than others; she does too.This one looks like fun. Also, btw, it is my 500th book a...

Looks like I'm in the mood of gobbling up stories. This book can really hooked you up. She played with with the pace, not exactly to let us wonder who the villain is, but to let us wonder when characters will really meet and realized what we've found out since the first page.I especially like how La...
