A classic of Victorian literature, East Lynne was first published in 1861. It was a sensational success, selling more than 500,000 copies and making its author as famous in her lifetime as Charles Dickens himself.
Beautiful, kind and virtuous, Lady Isabel Vane is the perfect wife and mother ... until, in a fit of jealousy, she leaves her dull, distracted husband and infant children to elope with her handsome, aristocratic suitor. Her fall from grace is absolute as she suffers the terrible punishment of those who dare to disobey a merciless moral code.

This is the most memorable book I have read in 20 years. This heart-warming tale puts you on the edge of your seat and you can't put it down. You need to read a few chapters to get into the plot.Well worth the efforts! 😝
