Having fled Rome and a stultifying marriage, Isabel Osmond is in London, brooding on the recent disclosure of her husband's shocking, years-long betrayal of her. What should she do now, and which way should she turn, in the emotional labyrinth where she has been trapped for so long?

Reawakened by grief and the knowledge of having been grievously wronged, she determines to resume her youthful quest for freedom and independence. 
Soon Isabel must return to Italy and confront her husband, and seek to break his powerful hold on her. But will she succeed in outwitting him, and securing her revenge?

Mrs Osmond is a masterly novel of betrayal, corruption and moral ambiguity, from the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A worthy sequel... His book is not only an impressive recreation of James's atmospheres and pacing, but also full of minor cliff-hangers and page-turning suspenses that keep you guessing." - Observer

"A brilliant feat of literary ventriloquism... Richly enjoyable and enthralling, this exercise in creative empathy is a sequel of very high finish." - Sunday Times 

"Written with near-Jamesian elegance." - Mail on Sunday

"Banville is one of the writers I admire the most - few people can create an image as beautifully or precisely." - Hanya Yanagihara, author of the Booker-shortlisted A Little Life

"This engrossing and often beautiful novel is a true work of art that rewards careful reading." - Daily Telegraph on Blue Guitar

"The Booker prize winning author - widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in English today - has produced what many already consider a literary masterpiece." - Sunday Independent on Ancient Light
