Victoria Cross

The spirit of a woman who passed away years ago is supposed to haunt and curse the house. Mr. Grey, a barrister and friend of Lady Ursula's, is skeptical about the otherworldly allegations.

About the Author

Cross, Victoria: - British New Woman fiction author Victoria Cross (1868-1952) skillfully included difficult subjects like gender, race, class, and sexuality into her tales and books. Cross was a prolific writer who published over twenty novels during the course of her remarkable career, beginning with the release of her first short stories in the mid-1890s. She had a global readership, but her personal life stayed quiet and enigmatic. Cross's real name was Annie Sophie Cory, but during her writing career, she went by a number of aliases. For a writer who published dozens of widely read pieces and was repeatedly singled out by the media, Cross was exceptionally good at hiding her identity. Apart from few personal anecdotes from fellow Yellow Book contributors, she was almost unknown. Following the publication of the first biography of Cross and an analysis of her texts by Shoshana Knapp in the late 1990s, scholarly interest in Cross and her works grew. Knapp's autobiography served as a precursor to Charlotte Mitchell's recent and thorough biographical studies on Cross.
