    East Lynne
  • Author: Wood, Ellen ; Jay, Elisabeth ; Jay, Elisabeth
  • Description: When the aristocratic Lady Isabel abandons her husband and children for her wicked seducer, more is at stake than moral retribution. This edition returns for the first time to the racy, slang-ridden narrative of the first edition, rather than the subsequent stylistically 'improved' versions hitherto reproduced by modern editors..
