'The Sealed Letter is a page-turner with a jaw-dropping ending' Stylist

Helen Codrington is unhappily married. Emily 'Fido' Faithfull hasn't seen her once-dear friend for years. Suddenly, after bumping into Helen on the streets of Victorian London, Fido finds herself reluctantly helping Helen to have an affair with a young army officer.

The women's friendship quickly unravels amid courtroom accusations of adultery, counter-accusations of cruelty and attempted rape, and the appearance of a mysterious 'sealed letter' that could destroy more than one life . . .

Based on a real-life scandal that gripped England in 1864, Emma Donoghue's The Sealed Letter is a delicious tale of secrets, betrayal, and forbidden love.

The Sealed Letter

Extramarital affairs, intrigue, scandal - great characters, complex relationships, courtroom room drama. Well written, I enjoyed this book very much. Carefully researched and planned - a pleasure to read.

Hmmm

Bought this book on a whim, being quite excited about trying something different.
Didn't seem to be hooked on this book, not really a page turner in my eyes, however, there are twists and history
