About this title


Fanny Turner is the daughter of a straight-laced policeman & a wayward whore, the latter abandoning her family in favor of life in a brothel. Fanny's father resents her resemblence to her missing mother -- they share the same angelic, pale beauty -- and so he marries again, this time to a well-educated woman he jilted years before. But contrary to expectations, Martha is a noble mother-figure; there's no wicked stepmother in this novel. Instead there's a wicked girl who's determined to guide her life into ruin -- because that's what her mother did, therefore it's her duty to follow in those footsteps, whether willing or unwilling. The remainder of the book is spent detailing her obsession with claiming her destiny as a fallen woman who doesn't deserve the smallest kindness from anyone remotely decent & clean-living (though that doesn't stop her from willfully wrecking everyone's happiness in the process).
