While not my favorite of Braddon's, the characters are fascinating. I don't know what other reviewers mean by predictable; it's not a mystery. It's a rather grim tale of three different women and how their upbringing determines their fate.

This was more predictable than any of the Braddon novels I've read. I disliked every character except Fay Fausset, whose story this ought to have been. How Braddon failed to realize this is beyond me.

Pleasant read although quite predictable. Less sensational than other Braddon novels. Interesting handle of religious issues.
