The Grey Woman

The Grey Woman (1861)

Elizabeth Gaskell

Suspenseful tale of a woman who stumbles into a marriage she doesn’t want then discovers her husband is a murderer. Considerably more action than in Gaskell’s “A Dark Night’s Work,” and though without the same level of characterization, still with a sympathetic heroine and her faithful servant who bring to this tale a satisfying sense of urgency.
