Cousin Betty by Honoré de Balzac

Cousin Betty by Honoré de Balzac

Set in mid-19th-century France, it tells the story of a woman who resents her position as a “poor relation.” As we follow her schemes to bring ruin upon the more privileged members of her family, we see a society in transition.

A Woman’s War

A Woman's War by Warwick Deeping

A Woman's War by Warwick Deeping

The fictional small English country town of Roxton boasts two doctors. This tale focuses on the struggles of their wives: Katherine and the “good” Dr. James Murchison and Betty and the “bad” Dr. Parker Steele. But, of course, no one is all good or all bad and there are hurdles to overcome, in this case in the form of alcoholism. The cost of the war between the two women is greater than either woman imagined. Deeping draws on his experiences as the son of a doctor in portraying some of the less pleasant facts of physiological reality, maybe more than in many other fictional works in this engrossing and heart-wrenching tale.

The Love Letters of Dorothy Osborne by Dorothy Osborne

After refusing a long string of suitors put forth by her family, including her cousin Thomas Osborne, Henry Cromwell (son of Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell) and Sir Justinian Isham, in 1655 Dorothy Osborne married Sir William Temple, a man with whom she had carried on a lengthy clandestine courtship that was largely epistolary in nature.
