Publisher Description

The novel has a convoluted plot about two distant cousins both named Allan Armadale. The father of one had murdered the father of the other (the two fathers are also named Allan Armadale). The story starts with a deathbed confession by the murderer in the form of a letter to be given to his baby son when he grows up. Many years are skipped over. The son, mistreated at home, runs away from his mother and stepfather, and takes up a wandering life under the assumed name of Ozias Midwinter.

Good, but long and complex!

I've read The Woman in White, Moonstone, and No Name, prior to this. While I enjoyed it, it was somewhat convoluted in it's story line, and thus was not quite as enjoyable as Wilkie Collins' other stories I've read.
