Thoughts on therapy and life

The Sealed Letter: Emma Donoghue

Leave a comment


This novel was written as fiction based on newspaper reports of a real life Victorian divorce. I found it to be well written, the characters very well drawn and there is some very dry humour in places, particularly the description of the actual divorce proceedings.  The serious message that I was left with however was just how horribly women were treated with regard to marriage, divorce and sexuality. A continuation of the message that a woman who likes sex is intrinsically evil.
