About this title:

Synopsis: This nonfiction account of the divorce of Isabella and Henry Robinson in 1858 is an elegantly rendered portrait of marriage, class and hypocrisy in Victorian Britain. The wealthy and unhappily married Isabella kept a detailed diary of her thoughts and feelings, including her lusty infatuation with other men, particularly a younger, married doctor. When her husband discovered the diary, and later presented it to the divorce court, all of England was shocked and scandalized. Described by the publisher as the story of a "real-life Madame Bovary," "Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace" also digresses into many aspects of Victorian culture, including phrenology, hydropathy and erotomania.
