Oberon Books has just published the Villette adaptation performed by the West Yorkshire Playhouse company:
Re-imagined by Linda Marshall Griffiths
Oberon Books
ISBN: 9781786820495
September 2016

An adaptation of the classic novel on the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth. With echoes of the illness and loss that wracked Brontë’s own life, both novel and play explore the redemptive power of love and the uncertainty of holding on to it.
Lucy Snowe, alone and abandoned, boards a boat in search of purpose. Arriving at an archaeological site digging for the remains of the elusive Lady of Villette, she works alongside the beautiful Gin, the prying Beck, the charming Dr John and the remote Professor Paul, though Lucy remains an outsider.
Absorbed in her work to find a cure for the next pandemic to secure humanity’s future, can she open herself up to the possibility of love and put the bones of the past behind her?
