Inspired by an episode in Henry James's life-the story of an independent young woman's flight from convention.

After the start of the Civil War, Emily Hudson-an orphan who lost her family to consumption and fever-finds herself the begrudged guest at the home of her relatives in Newport. Emily's longing to be an artist is dismissed by her puritanical uncle, who wants nothing more than to rid himself of her through marriage. Her only friend is her aesthete cousin, William, an ailing young writer. When a promising engagement to the eligible Captain Lindsay is broken, William rescues Emily from an uncertain future by taking her to England. Lonely and desperate to escape her cousin-once her confidante, now her obsessively controlling patron-Emily sets out alone to meet her destiny in the eternal city of Rome.

Reminiscent of the novels of Edith Wharton, Emily Hudson is an exquisitely told tale about a heroine struggling to be true to herself, and also find love in a society where only marriage or an independent income guaranteed a woman the freedom to do as she pleased.

About the Author:

Melissa Jones lives in Essex, England, with her husband and two children. She is the sister of novelist Sadie Jones.

From AudioFile:

An episode in the life of Henry James concerning his relationship with his cousin, Minny Temple, is the inspiration for this engrossing novel. Lorna Raver is Emily Hudson, a high-spirited, independent young woman who longs to be an artist in a period when girls were expected to conform to rigid norms. Raver's girlish enthusiasm contains the flush of youth as Emily manages to scandalize and outrage her severely critical uncle, at the same time captivating her cousin William, an up-and-coming writer. As Emily battles consumption, listeners will feel Raver growing weak and pale along with her. From the intriguing prologue--in which a man is throwing beautiful gowns into the river--to the triumphant conclusion, Lorna Raver turns EMILY HUDSON into a woman worth knowing. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
