The mysterious new tenant of Wildfell Hall is a strong-minded woman who
keeps her own counsel. Helen 'Graham' - exiled with her child to the
desolate moorland mansion, adopting an assumed name and earning her living
as a painter - has returned to Wildfell Hall in flight from a disastrous
marriage. Narrated by her neighbour Gilbert Markham, and in the pages of
her own diary, the novel portrays Helen's eloquent struggle for
independence at a time when the law and society defined a married woman as
her husband's property.
