Beautiful Lies by Clare Clark

<div>London in 1887. For Maribel Campbell Lowe, the beautiful, bohemian wife of a maverick politician, it is the year to make something of herself. A self-proclaimed Chilean heiress educated in Paris, she is torn between poetry and the new art of photography. But it is soon plain that Maribels choices are not so simple. As her husbands career hangs by a thread her real past, and the family she abandoned, come back to haunt them both. When the notorious newspaper editor Alfred Webster begins to take an uncommon interest in Maribel, she fears he will destroy not only Edwards career but both of their reputations.</div> <div></div> <div>Inspired by the true story of a Liberal MPs wife who lived a double life for decades,<i>Beautiful Lies</i>is set in a time that, fraught with economic uncertainty and tabloid scandal-mongering, uncannily presages our own. Praised by Hilary Mantel as one of those writers who can see into the past and help us feel its texture, Clark has created a brilliant, riveting novel of late Victorian England.<br /></div
