Description:
First published in 1853, The Heir of Redclyffe was the most successful novel of the century. The protagonist, Guy, was a popular role model of noble virtue, while another character, Amy, was seen as the ideal Victorian wife -- redeemer and inspirer, supporter and guide. This novel is a virtual paradigm of the trends of thought which marked the middle decades of the nineteenth century.
