    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookSoporific Tedious LacklusterThis is one of those books that sounds really gooduntil you read it and then you wonder what on earth are all of these rave reviews for? Did we read the same book? I don't think so because the book I read was dull as dull could be The characters were not brought to life the interactions were melodramatic and the story was tedious I thought the most interesting part of this book was the author's note Helen Condrington runs into her old friend Emily 'Fido' Faithful in the street just two weeks after Helen's return to London from Malta where she and her husband Harry have been living for seven years Helen and Fido were very close when they were younger and they resume their friendship now that Helen is back Helen's husband soon files for divorce and Fido finds herself drawn into the ensuing courtroom drama Donoghue creates a realistic enough setting London 1864 but without an engaging story

    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookI'd heard good things about Emma Donoghue but as her historical fiction is usually set in the Victorian period a period I don't have much interest in I doubted very much that I would ever read a book by her But then on a whim at a sale I picked up this one And boy am I glad I did as I think I've discovered a new favourite authorOn the surface this book is about a scandalous Victorian divorce case weren't they all? and this one had it all; a decorated Admiral as the petitioner a cheating wife with not one but two lovers men under the Admiral's command named as co respondents hints of assignations and sex in 'exotic' locations accusations of attempted rape a well known early feminist as a witness for the defence disappearance of said witness and hints of 'unnatural' acts lesbianism The sensationalist press of the time had a field day and the retelling of the story makes for a compelling and page turning

    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookStarted off very engrossing and remained a fascinating glimpse into the birth of feminism Is it a professional defect that the trial scenes bogged down for me? Overall an extremely well researched and atmospheric glimpse into the gender and sexual complexities of the Victorian upper middle class Part of Donoghue's skill however makes this book less enjoyable than it could be all three of her main characters adulteress husband and faithfu

    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookFirstly let me start by saying that I think Emma Donoghue is a great writer She can certainly spin a yarn and I kept reading right to the end as I wanted to know what happened However there were a few minor issues that kept me from rating this higher In a nutshell the book documents a true event a high profile divorce in the Victorian era and the interference support of the wife's friend 'Fido' It's told from a variety of viewpoints mostly from Fido's but occasionally from Helen's the wife and even her husband Its climax is the court scene where Helen essentially calls upon her friend to lie for her in court but things don't turn out uite as plannedEssentially this was an interesting read It was thought provoking regarding not only divorce laws in the 19th century but also attitudes towards women in general However I had a few problems with

    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookI feel like the best part of this book is the fact that Emily Fido Faithfull is a big dumb gay puppy It's both incredibly endearing and almost unbearable to read for exampleFido winces at the image She bends over Helen Lean on me my own one I'll stand by youThrough everything?EverythingI can stay?For as long as you need Forever Fido's thinking though she doesn't dare say it not yetOh Fido how did I ever manage without you all those lonely yearsHer mind is leaping into the future Why not? Women do live together sometimes if they have the means and are free from other obligations It's eccentric but not improper She's known several examples in the Reform movement Miss Power Cobbe and her partner Miss Lloyd for instance It can

    PDF EPUB Emma Donoghue ´ ´ The Sealed Letter MOBI ò The SealedMOBI :æ sealed download, letter ebok, The Sealed download, The Sealed Letter eBookGreat book I thoroughly enjoyed this one I feel like I’ve been let in on a bunch of gossip that’s turned out to be mostly true Emma Donoghue has written a story around a historic Victorian era divorce case This is no ordinary lightweight frivolity this is full bodied passion Ms Donoghue has done a great deal of research into the case which smacks of realism and is in fact often closely worded to the actual trial But her research does not direct itself exclusively to the trial and what went before but has done an in depth study of Victorian s the rights and lack of the Victorian wife the fledgling women’s rights movements and the backgrounds of the real people involvedThis book is very well written I admit to checking a couple of times whether I was reading fiction or non fiction The flow was such that I had trouble putting the book down This is the story of Helen the respondent in the trial who is married to a mu
