520    In the spring of 1895 the life of Constance Wilde changed 
       irrevocably. Up until the conviction of her husband, Oscar,
       for homosexual crimes, she had held a privileged position 
       in society. Part of a gilded couple, she was a popular 
       children's author, a fashion icon, and a leading 
       campaigner for women's rights. A founding member of the 
       magical society The Golden Dawn, her pioneering and 
       questioning spirit encouraged her to sample some of the 
       more controversial aspects of her time. Mrs. Oscar Wilde 
       was a phenomenon in her own right. But that spring 
       Constance's entire life was eclipsed by scandal. Forced to
       flee to the Continent with her two sons, her glittering 
       literary and political career ended abruptly. She lived in
       exile until her death. Franny Moyle now tells Constance's 
       story with a fresh eye. Drawing on numerous unpublished 
       letters, she brings to life the story of a woman at the 
       heart of fin-de-si├Ęcle London and the Aesthetic movement. 
       In a compelling and moving tale of an unlikely couple 
       caught up in a world unsure of its moral footing, Moyle 
       unveils the story of a woman who was the victim of one of 
       the greatest betrayals of all time.
