The story is of an ex-army captain Justin Thornhill, who places and add in a newspaper advertisement for a wife in 1859 ( Tinder and Match not around yet)”-)

When reading the book several of my female friends came to mind as the character “Helena Reynolds. They would do anything to escape their life and marry a complete stranger.

The two get married and then her past comes up. You have to read the book for what happens next.

The book was inspired by two real events in from 1850’s a London Times story about the incarceration of a sane woman and the Bibighar Massacre during Sepoy Rebellion.

The book reminded of Jane Austin type stories.
