A Burglary: Or, Unconscious Influence
Clever yet comic and riveting, this Victorian comedy of manners was first published in 1883 as a three-volume novel. When heiress Ethel Carton is robbed of her prized jewels, a local collier and poacher is accused. But the real culprit is Sylvester, a gentleman and shady financier, who goes unsuspected until he falls for the headstrong yet moral heroine Imogen Rhys, Ethel's young cousin. The unconscious influence of Ethel and Imogen inspires both love and goodness despite diversion and danger in a sensational, dramatic denouement.
