Jonathan Hopgate's opportunistic marriage to a sick woman has disastrous consequences.

 A Victorian gothic tale of  thwarted desire.

An opportunistic marriage to a wealthy manufacturer's daughter rescues Jonathan Hopgate from the impoverished life of a drawing master, restoring him to his rightful position as master of High Withens.  But when he sets eyes on the exquisite Agnes Slane, distaste for his sickly bride turns to revulsion ... a revulsion that breeds poisonous desires ...

Excerpt
The rain fell skittishly, like nuptial rice, the morning Jonathan Hopgate brought home a limp bride who would begin dying in the east wing at High Withens ...
