The Mysteries of Udolpho - Ann Radcliffe


Less than 200 pages left to go. 


It's a marvel that Emily manages to get anything done--she refuses to eat, she stays up all night listening & thinking, basically it's no wonder that she feels faint so often.


I'm glad I tackled this old Gothic tale, but wow, times have changed!  It's not easy for the modern reader to wade through all the descriptive detail.
