No NameeBook - 2015
A tragic tale of family and misfortune from the author of The Woman in White. When their beloved parents die in quick succession, Magdalen and Norah Vanstone find that their world has been torn asunder. Through a legal technicality, their father's will renders them without a legitimate claim to their inheritance. All of their family's money goes to their uncle, and the orphaned girls are left reeling. Reduced to utter poverty, Norah takes a job as a governess. But Magdalen is determined to win back what is rightfully theirs. In this deft and moving story, Wilkie Collins weaves a powerful narrative of justice and familial bonds. This ebook features a new introduction from Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
