This book is all about a very talented wealthy young authoress, married to a titled unfaithful man. Initially in the marriage, her world revolves around him and she adores him. When she finds out what he's really like, the betrayal literally kills her.
I think it is an excellent book because even nowadays, there still are a lot of women who love their man very deeply and when the relationship goes wrong, they never get over it.
I almost wanted to read the book again but am now reading another Marie Corelli book. Her books are timeless because human nature never changes!
