Description
In 1852, on a steamer from France to England, 19-year-old Theresa Longworth met a soldier, William Charles Yelverton, later the Viscount of Avonmore. Their flirtation became an epistolary affair, and five years later they married secretly in Edinburgh, and again that same summer in Dublinóor did they? They were separated by circumstance soon after they were wed, and Yelverton married another woman, while the abandoned Theresa found herself embroiled in a series of scandalous trials in Victorian Britain, forced to prove the validity of her marriage even as she hoped for reconciliation. Her story, in this first book by ChloŽ Schama, is an historical moment in women's fight for independence and equality.

"A nonfiction debut most writers only dream about.... ChloŽ Schama's retelling of the history of one of Victorian England's most notorious scandals reads like a novel."óLibrary Journal
