The New Magdalen

by Wilkie Collins

When a young woman is presumed dead in a war, another woman seizes the opportunity to escape her past and assume her identity. But when the first woman is found alive, the two must confront their pasts and the lies they have told. This hook introduces the central conflict of the novel: two women with very different pasts who are forced to come together when their lives become intertwined. It also hints at the themes of deception, redemption, and second chances that are explored in the novel.
