Hester / Margaret Oliphant

The Victorian Novel Book Club will discuss “Hester” by Margaret Oliphant, first published in 1883. One of the great Victorian novels, Hester tells the story of the aging but powerful Catherine Vernon, and her conflict with the young and determined Hester, whose growing attachment to Edward, Catherine’s favorite, spells disaster for all concerned.
