The Sealed Letter is one of those books I keep meaning to read every time it crosses the counter at the library. Thanks for the reminder, Cornflower!

I thought of Lady Audley when I read The Sealed Letter, and not just because Mrs. Braddon is mentioned. I didn’t realize, till I read the afterword, that the book was based on true events. Both Lady Audley and Helen Codrington behave badly, but my 20th century sensibility felt sorry for them, because they lived in a society that gave them so few options.

Cornflower

You're welcome, Darlene.

Coincidentally, I'm reading another novel about divorce at the moment, though this one (Patience by John Coates) was written and is set in the 1950s, and yes, how things have changed!
