Molly (mollysmiles) | 6 comments The book is an older one. It has a lady who is very sick and is dying in an attic or an upper story room. Right before she dies a man comes to her side and apologizes for what he has done to her.

THIS IS NOT JANE EYRE- Lady in attic is not crazy just sick and dying!


Cheryl has hopes her life will calm down soonish (cherylllr) For adults (not teens)?

Older, than, say, 1970? Or older than, say, 1930?

Do you know if the man was related to her?

Do you know (guess) anything about the cover, or whether it was read for a college class or just for fun, or whether it was popular at the time?

Molly (mollysmiles) | 6 comments Older then 1930- I believe. No, the man is not related to her. I think at one time he tormented her and loved her secretly. It was read for fun. I can't think of anything to do with the cover.


Cheryl has hopes her life will calm down soonish (cherylllr) Hmm - I've no clue - hope someone does!

Molly, are you still looking for this book? Was this American, British, or other?

Molly (mollysmiles) | 6 comments I'm still looking, I think its British, but I could be wrong


Cheryl has hopes her life will calm down soonish (cherylllr) If you bump this thread every month or two, you'll have a better chance of keeping your query fresh in our minds and getting your book ID'd.

Also, edit your header with descriptive information. You will get more clicks that way.

Lilo--you need to start your own thread for your book.

Sorry! I didn't know. How do you start your own thread? I am a computer-dummy.

On the main page, find the heading UNSOLVED. Click on it. In tiny font, see "new topic" about in the middle of the page. Click on that. In the "topic" box type a description of the book you are trying to find. It's okay if the description is long - better than too short. For example your header could be "Thick paperback about microbiology by female microbiologist." Or even longer if you want. Leave "this topic is about" blank - that will be filled in with the book when your query is solved. Make sure the "folder" says UNSOLVED. Type your book description, as detailed as possible in the box.

Karen | 41 comments The only book I can think of is East Lynne

But it is the dying lady apologizing to her husband, and not so much the other way round.


message 16: by Molly (new)

Molly (mollysmiles) | 6 comments I have read East Lynne, it is not that book. I think it is a book I have to write now!

Male or female author?
