Lady Audley's secret by M. E Braddon( )

269 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 4,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When young Lucy Graham marries Sir Michael Audley, all seems well and good. Sir Michael is thoroughly devoted to his new bride and Lady Audley takes great pride in her privileged position at Audley Court. But Sir Michael's daughter, Alicia, is frustrated and uncomfortable with her new stepmother's girlish ways. Shortly afterwards, Sir Michael's nephew, the attractive but lazy barrister Robert Audley, welcomes back to England an old friend of his, George Talboys. The pair visit the Court for some sport, where George disappears in mysterious circumstances. Robert Audley is spurred into action, taking up the case with a new-found passion and energy
Aurora Floyd by Mary Elizabeth (Braddon) Maxwell( )

109 editions published between 1863 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Lady Audley, Aurora is a beautiful young woman bigamously married and threatened with exposure by a blackmailer. But in Aurora Floyd, and in many of the novels written in imitation of it, bigamy is little more than a euphemism, a device to enable the heroine, and vicariously the reader, to enjoy the forbidden sweets of adultery without adulterous intentions. Passionate, sometimes violent, Aurora does succeed in enjoying them, her desires scarcely chastened by her disastrous first marriage. She represents a challenge to the mid-Victorian sexual code, and particularly to the feminine ideal of simpering, angelic young ladyhood. P.D. Edward's introduction evaluates the novel's leading place among 'bigamy-novels' and Braddon's treatment of the power struggle between the sexes, as well as considering the similarities between the author and her heroine
The doctor's wife by Mary Elizabeth Braddon( )

56 editions published between 1864 and 2015 in English and German and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman with a secret, adultery, death, and the spectacle of female recrimination and suffering are the elements which combine to make The Doctor's Wife a classic women's sensation novel. The novel is also self-consciously literary, however, and Braddon attempts to transcend the sensation genre
Fenton's quest a novel by Mary Elizabeth Braddon( )

63 editions published between 1870 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story revolves around Gilbert Fenton, a very talented middle class businessman from London, who falls in love with a beautiful country woman far below his station. He decides to marry her anyway. But is she all that she seems?"--Summary from Amazon
In the shadow of Agatha Christie : classic crime fiction by forgotten female writers : 1850-1917 by Leslie S Klinger( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new anthology brings the female crime writers who inspired Agatha Christie out of her shadow and back into the spotlight they deserve. The success of writers like Anna Katherine Green in America; L.T. Meade, C.L. Pirkis, the Baroness Orczy, and Elizabeth Corbett in England; and Mary Fortune in Australia opened doors for the women authors who followed them. While Agatha Christie may still reign supreme, the genre would be much poorer without the bold, fearless work of her predecessors

38 editions published between 1865 and 2013 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition includes a critical Afterword and endnotes by Victorian scholar Dr. Chris Willis."--Jacket

Eleanor's victory by Mary Elizabeth Braddon( Book )

47 editions published between 1863 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary Elizabeth Braddon wrote her third sensation novel, Eleanor’s Victory, as a defence of her role as a popular writer. Alongside a melodramatic tale of an orphan’s revenge, she provided her readers with an insider view of cultural production, emphasizing the skill needed to entertain audiences. In the novel she promoted the value of ‘lowbrow’ forms such as melodrama, exposing the reductionist cultural categories of ‘high’ and ‘low’ which were used by critics to maintain artificial divisions between elite and working-class forms. Her complicated mystery plot is enriched by references to a wide range of other texts, both literary and visual, as Braddon provides her readers with an informed commentary about melodrama and its pleasures."--Deborah Wynne,
