Judith runs away from home to escape an arranged marriage and to pursue her thespian dreams and quest for true love in London only to find herself pregnant, poor, and alone. Forty years later Anna is a recluse living in her monstrous Victorian with a mysterious old man. Her known history is no more than a few facts-release dates of her books, a stint in a mental institution, and an ominous book dedication to an old lover. But when aspiring writer Letta Berget convinces Anna to allow her to write the novelist's biography, Anna's secrets-past and present-are not the only ones revealed. Letta has forfeited a life of her own in order to research Stretferd and become a writer of the highest caliber. But as she becomes submerged in the lives of Anna and Judith she discovers that in order to realize her dreams, she must face her own dark origins and not be afraid to live a life of her own....

    somewhat defying my tags/shelves, this reminded me initially of The Thirteenth Tale, which I really enjoyed some time ago. This is cleverly woven together with 3 separate women's stories, more modern than historical in fact. The use of Judith, the eponymous historical character, whose story is quoted in snippets throughout, was a clever device to draw the tale along and lead the reader to see the point of the story. Although the author within the book tells her biographer that all readers draw their own conclusions and a writer shouldn't impose her own on the readers, so maybe that's just what I drew from it.
