The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Diversion Illustrated Classics)
Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.
Once considered a challenge to social conventions too brutal to be published, this tale follows the beautiful but evasive Helen Graham to the haven of Wildfell Hall. A talented painter living with just her young son, she quickly becomes the talk of the town, drawing the attention of a young farmer named Gilbert Markham. But when Helen refuses to reveal anything about her past, kind curiosity turns into vicious rumors. Although Gilbert is tempted to believe the worst, his world changes when Helen places her diary in his hands. The shocking details of Helen’s past and her escape from her husband make this a powerful read and a staggering censure of marriage.
