    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Fellowes: The Bravo tale is a tangled one and time has made a cloak of mystery around it that's hard to put aside.

      • Fellowes: Charles may sound generous, but don't be deceived. Displaying a tolerance ahead of his time, in that moral climate? No man would have been abe to simply set aside an adulterous liaison and an illicit pregnancy. Florence's real attraction was her money.

      • Florence: I want my life to begin again. I want to be able to laugh and move amongst decent people.

      • Fellowes: By the 21st of April 1876 Charles Bravo, a bridegroom of only five months, was dead. The cause was antimone, a poison that literally burns away the organs of the victim. A ghastly death.

      • Fellowes: The Priory, Ballam; a strange, quiet place. There was a murder in this house, a murder that rocked Victorian society.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Charles is annoyed to learn that Florence has invoked the Married Women's Property Act. When this law was passed, it granted married women the same rights over their property and finances as unmarried women. Prior to its implementation, all property and other forms of wealth automatically became the possession of the husband upon marriage.
