The Last of Lady Lansdown
by Shirley Kennedy
The Earl of Lansdown is dead and few mourn him. Certainly not Jane Elton, whose life he made a misery. However, unless she is pregnant with a son, who would inherit his father’s fortune and title, she stands to lose everything. Enter Douglas Cartland, a rake with a tragic past. During these first months of widowhood, Jane’s conduct must be above reproach, but she cannot keep her distance.
