Letters of a Noble Mind

Through their personal letters and journals, and extracts from contemporary newspapers, Victorian London's high society candidly reveals itself, replete with the moral conflicts and impositions that defined the age.

In their own private words, the 19th century's social elite unveil the plots and intrigues that colour their privileged lives. Laced within the genteel elegance of their written language lies the truth of their repressed emotions and forbidden passions, and the symbols of their slavish devotion to a sense of propriety that stifles the primordial human instinct which is, by social necessity, latent in the cultured classes.

But though they guard their secrets well, truth finds its own way out of the darkness and unleashes into their lives events that will rock the foundations of their orderly world.
