Summary
Freed from an unhappy marriage by her husband's death, Victorian widow Cora Seaborne settles in Colchester, where she pursues her interest in natural history by searching the Blackwater estuary for evidence of the Essex Serpent, a winged serpent dismissed as superstition by vicar Will Ransome, but greatly feared by the locals. With its heady atmosphere and lush descriptions, the novel vividly explores Victorian English society and culture through the experiences of its ensemble cast. -- Description by Gillian Speace
