Goodreads Monday is now hosted by Budget Tales Book Club. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
I hope everyone has had a good start to the week. I have been trying to catch up on chores today but I did manage some quiet time with my book as well.
I am continuing with featuring books off my Classics Club list and I am also linking my Goodreads Monday posts on the main list as well so I don’t forget which books I have featured.
Wilkie Collins is rightly regarded as one of the nineteenth century’s most eminent writers. Although many Persephone readers will know The Woman in White and The Moonstone, he in fact published twenty-one other novels. The New Magdalen (1873), Persephone Book No.138, is about a ‘fallen woman’, Mercy Merrick, attempting to rehabilitate her character and her reputation; and the (often reprehensible and unkind) attitude of some of those around her.
I absolutely loved reading The Woman in White so I am looking forward to reading The New Magdalen. I always find it such a shame that books get lost and forgotten so I think it is great of Persephone books to get this book back on the shelves and people reading it again.
Please drop me a comment if you have taken part in Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.
