The Glass Virgin: A Novel by Catherine Cookson

Annabella Lagrange had the kind of childhood that most can only dream about. The only child of an aristocratic couple, raised on their magnificent estate in the English countryside, she was loved by her parents and coddled by servants who acquiesced to her every whim. She was allowed to do anything she wanted, except, of course, to stray too far from her wing of the house. But her seclusion didnt concern her too much, because when she grew up, she planned to marry her handsome cousin Stephen and live happily ever after.However, on the morning of her tenth birthday, Annabella ventured farther than shed ever gone before. Overcome with curiosity, she opened a forbidden door that led into her fathers private quarters, and what she found there showed her with shocking clarity that her father was not the man she thought he was. And though she couldnt know it at the time, the events of that day set in motion the uncovering of a secret that had been kept for many years.So begins the remarkable story of Annabella Lagrange, a sensitive, beautiful young woman who was raised as a lady. But when she turns eighteen, she learns the surprising circumstances of her birth, and her entire world quietly crashes around her. Suddenly shes forced from the genteel surroundings of her youth into the rough, lower-class society of Victorian England, where only her quick wit and determination can save her from starvation.Catherine Cookson was one of the worlds most beloved writers, and inThe Glass Virginher powers are at their height. Rarely has a heroine been portrayed more sensitively or a situation more compellingly. Filled with passion and drama,The Glass Virginis a rare treat for lovers of romantic fiction.
