Havisham by Ronald Frame
Havisham: Book summary and reviews of Havisham by Ronald Frame
Before she became the immortal and haunting Miss Havisham of Great Expectations, she was Catherine, a young woman with all of her dreams ahead of her. Spry, imperious, she is the daughter of a wealthy brewer. But she is never far from the smell of hops and the arresting letters on the brewhouse wall - HAVISHAM - a reminder of all she owes to the family name and the family business.
"Frame offers a convincing recreation of the iconic Dickens character, but his tale suffers from centering on such an unappealing protagonist." - Publishers Weekly
