about

From the author of The Moonstone and The Woman in White.  

Sisters Magdalen and Norah Vanstone and her sister Norah are left to fend for themselves when their parents die and a disturbing truth becomes public. Disinherited by law and brutally ousted from the idyllic country estate which has been their peaceful home since childhood, the two young women choose radically different means to get their lives back on track. While Nora follows a path of duty and hardship as a governess, Magdalen uses her good looks to pursue a course of revenge on the men who destroyed her father. Aided by the audacious swindler Captain Wragge, she braves a series of trials leading up to the climactic test: can she trade herself in marriage to the man she loathes? 

Written in the early 1860s, between The Woman in White and The Moonstone, No Name was rejected as immoral by critics of its time, but is today regarded as a novel of outstanding social insight, showing Collins at the height of his powers. 

This under-rated but brilliant Wilkie Collins classic is presented with original illustrations and links to free full-length audio recordings of No Name.
