The "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Lady Audley's Secret" by Mary Elizabeth Braddon. 'Lady Audley uttered a long, low, wailing cry, and threw up her arms above her head with a wild gesture of despair'. In this outlandish, outrageous triumph of scandal fiction, a new Lady Audley arrives at the manor: young, beautiful - and very mysterious. Why does she behave so strangely? What, exactly, is the dark secret this seductive outsider carries with her? A huge success in the nineteenth century, the book's anti-heroine - with her good looks and hidden past - embodied perfectly the concerns of the Victorian age with morality and madness. "The Penguin English Library" contains 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
