 Written as a companion volume to Kate Grenville’s previously published Lilian’s Story, Albion’s Story focuses on Lilian’s father Albion Gidley Singer. Born as the only son of a successful merchant in the later part of the 19th century, Albion eventually takes over his father’s business, reluctantly marries and fathers two children. Fascinated by women, yet violently repelled by them, he develops an obsession for his first-born daughter Lilian. As she matures into an iron-willed young woman, an ongoing power struggle ensues between father and daughter, as he ultimately rapes her and ignites her journey into madness.
