Ethel Mannin

Unfortunately, Ethel Mannin is now much forgotten. Her first novel, Martha, was published in 1923. According to one critic, the novel "elaborately plots the life of the lovechild of an unmarried woman and the price the child has to pay for the sins of the parents." This was followed by the Hunger for the Sea (1924), Sounding Brass (1925) and Pilgrims (1927). The author of The Feminist Companion to Literature in English has argued that "these are socially and politically conscious works, alert to women's oppression" She wrote over 100 books during her lifetime.

Most of her books are now out of print but she is worth searching out.

I like it because it is just so blatantly over the top. It makes me laugh. There are quite a lot of fit naked guys in it as well though, which is always appreciated.

Poor old Mabe, perhaps you should get her breakfast in bed and she might return the favor with something a little more appetising.

So my story takes place in Victorian Era England, London, mostly. My main character is a coroner (examines dead bodies) and works out of the main level and basement of his London home.
