Wife in Name Only

EPUB EBook by Charlotte M. Brame

EBook Description

"Wife in Name Only" by Charlotte M. Wife in Name Only EPUB EBook Brame is fairly typical of the "dime novel" genre (though lacking the usual rich Americans). It starts off with a young nobleman (startlingly, the heir to an Earldom, not a Baronetcy), travelling incognito with his heavily pregnant wife. They arrive in a small village (in England) and she is in a bad way. She gives birth and then dies. The nobleman leaves the baby with the village doctor and continues on his way to Italy to see his probably- EPUBdying father (who doesn't know about his marriage and would disapprove if he did), promising to return in three years for the child (who must be named Madaline, after her now-dead mother).
