Belle Moral : a natural history by Ann-Marie MacDonald( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ann-Marie MacDonalds love of the fabulous is in full force with this multi-layered reworking of her earlier play, The Arabs Mouth. Following her fathers death, amateur scientist Pearl MacIsaac struggles to discover the secret of her familys past, which her father had been kept hidden with the help of the family doctor. Set in Scotland in 1899, this dark and redemptive gothic comedy is a story of family secrets that have come to life and of the birth and evolution of ideas and truly a play of morals. Reaching out in two directions to reconcile the extremes of rationalism and romanticism, Belle Moral embraces a complex range of turn-of-the-century thought including Charles Darwins theory of evolution, contemporary medical beliefs and the concept of eugenics."--pub. desc

Lois Relph, a young stepmother with two stepdaughters for whom she cares deeply and her own thriving business, appears contented and in charge. The play begins as middle-aged widower Eustace Gaydon learns that his late sister Fanny has left £30,000 to her impoverished, young, orphaned companion Lois rather than to him. Eustace's financial troubles had left him hoping to inherit, so he woos Lois before she learns of her inheritance. The play continues a decade later. Lois has married Eustace to become the titular stepmother to his two daughters. She owns a successful dress-making business, but Eustace controls and mismanages the family's finances. It is an unhappy marriage, and Lois sought refuge from her misery in an affair with neighbor Peter Holland. When Lois seeks a dowry for her step-daughter's prospective marriage, the truth of Eustace's financial mismanagement emerges. Eustace confronts Peter and flees England with the remains of Lois's fortune
