The Angelic Avengers

Автор: Pierre Andrézel

Длина: 379 стр.6 ч


First published in English in 1946, this introspective novel by Pierre Andrézel (aka Karen Blixen) is set in England and France during the 1840s and tells the story of two young, innocent girls and the horrors they must endure during this time.

Lucan has been orphaned and Zosine has been deserted, and London is a hostile place for two young girls without a home. Bound together by poverty, grief and their shared years at school, they set out to make a future for themselves in new surroundings. They are adopted by the austere, puritanical Reverend Pennhallow and his wife, and in their large, gloomy house they become immersed in study. But, after a chain of disturbing events, it does not take long before they realize that the cleric and his wife are not all they seem to be…

“A spellbinding story of fascinating romance, chilling mystery and perilous adventures that sets two friendless young women in a house of unspeakable evil. Written by the greatest Gothic novelist of our time, this is a ‘novel of superlatively fine literary quality.’”—Book of the Month Club News
