The Sealed Letter

I just finished reading The Sealed Letter, an absorbing novel based on a real-life divorce case in Victorian England. The author, Emma Donoghue, acknowledges in an afterword that one of her sources was the work of historian Martha Vicinus, who discusses the actual divorce case in her book Intimate Friends: Women Who Loved Women, 1778-1928. Both books are available at Laidlaw Library.
