Mary Seaham is an orphan living in Wales. All of her sisters have already been married, it is only her waiting for the return of her brother, Arthur Seaham. After the wedding of her last sister has taken place, Mary finds herself being proposed to by the rector Edward Tempel. She refuses him and goes to her cousin Louis de Burgh, in whose mansion Silverston she hopes to find a new home. And so she does, especially after meeting the cousin of Louis' wive, Eugene Trevor. They had already met in the past and Mary could not forget him. Soon she finds herself engaged to Eugene, which Louis tries to prevent eagerly. However, Mary doesn't listen to him and falls innocently in a trap, because Eugene has a very dark und hidden secret which is associated with the madness and disappearance of his brother Eustace Trevor.

When I was reading the novel, I soon found myself entangled in a family drama, I must say, was suspenseful and very strange. Telling you any more of the plot would spoil every fun and mystery. I recommend this novel that has surprised me with its twists. However, if you are not a native English speaker you will probably have problems following the story and comprehending all the details. It takes a long time until you get used to Mrs Grey's writing style which, I think, is difficult to follow. All in all, this novel is worth reading and I recommend 'Mary Seaham' to everyone interested in reading victorian literature. ( )
