The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the second and final novel by Anne Brontë, is concerned with the story of a woman who leaves her abusive, dissolute husband, and who must then support herself and her young son. Originally published in June of 1848, it challenged the prevailing morals of the time; a critic went so far as to pronounce it “utterly unfit to be put into the hands of girls”. It is considered to be one of the first feminist novels. (Summary from Wikipedia)

A man writes to his friend to describe the young widow who moved into his neighborhood, the tenant of Wildfell Hall. First the story is in his words, then we hear the lady's story from her journal. A very good story about love and the consequences of bad marriage choices. The readings were decent. The readers tended to change every few chapters. Sone of the readers have heavy accents, but only a few of the readers were really very bad. A few chapters were recorded badly and cut off the narrative, which was frustrating.
