The Grey Woman


By Elizabeth Gaskell

Originally a three-part novella published in a literary journal by Charles Dickens, The Grey Woman tells a powerful story of deception and distrust in an epistolary format from the perspective of the protagonist, Anna Scherer. Similar to other Gaskell works, a recurring theme is the oppression of women through marriage. This book is considered ahead of its time for its progressive feminist views. With an introduction by Molly Greeley, bestselling author of The Clergyman’s Wife and The Heiress.

The books in Plumleaf Vintage are books to linger over. They are our legacy and are part of a historical record of women speaking about their lives in their own voices. The authors deserve to be read and remembered.

Plumleaf Vintage is a series of beautifully designed novels by women authors — beloved classics that may be at risk of being forgotten or overlooked. The stories in Plumleaf Vintage eloquently reflect the complexity of being a woman in the time and culture portrayed. They speak to the challenges faced by women to define an individual identity separate from a man’s and explore the ways that women have always pushed against the boundaries imposed by the mores of the time. The first three books in this series are classic epistolary novels, a form that lends itself to great intimacy with the characters’ thoughts and feelings.
