My Lady's Money by Wilkie Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I adore Wilkie Collins. As a friend of the well-known Charles Dickens, I think he was a bit overshadowed by him.
This is a delightful tale of a woman of means who becomes the victim of the theft of a 500 pound note in her home. There are a number of possible suspects and she obtains help in pursuing the perpetrator. She retains a young girl as her companion and as she is of much lower rank and may be looked on as the possible thief, she is sent away to her Aunt, Miss Pink, to live until the manner is resolved.
The book is full of colorful characters and the action is fun and such an interesting look at the times of the mid to late 1800's England.
