Excerpt from Lady Jean: The Romance of the Great Douglas Cause The exciting story of the Douglas Cause, now for the first time related in these pages, has always attracted the attention of sagacious observers, who have followed its mysteries as a tantalising and almost insoluble problem. It is curious that, where almost every romance of the kind has been debated and explored, this should have been completely overlooked for a period of nearly a hundred and forty years. I was lately much interested to find that in the year i 860 the romantic instincts of Thomas Carlyle - that shrewd observer and most dramatic critic - were aroused by a casual encounter with a little book on the subject. He writes to a friend of his discovery. "We got a Book (one of the many Books, I think it is Boswell's) on the Douglas Cause not very long since; and were reading it: I wonder if the Signet Library (should one survive, and have liberty to read for amusement!) has got all the books on that Douglas Cause?

Jean Barrie is an enormously successful, award-winning singer who spends her time in self-imposed retreat in her huge, dark St. John's Wood home. Here she wanders around the empty rooms drinking gin and vodka. Upstairs in the attic lives her mysterious lodger, The Fallen Nun. Beyond the house, Jean's narrow world is inhabited by her octogenarian Aunt Dizzy, who smokes hand-rolled cigars, wears blood-red hot pants, and gave up aerobics at 79; Jean's best friend Freida—the self-styled Devils Dyke; and Christopher—a 17-year-old with a Bible-bashing mother and a passion for his Uncle Fergus—who tends the garden and cleans the house. But Jean's solitude is about to be invaded: the house rapidly becomes a haven for eccentric souls drawn to her by chance or design, and sudden death and revelations of past horrors dart in from unexpected directions. A satisfying gem of offbeat humor with dark tragedy, Lady Jean is Virtue at his best, as he skillfully weaves his narrative into a unique tapestry. A romantic novel from one of New Zealand's most revered writers.
