... to the Fingersmith fans: The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins, written in 1860. Collins was a contemporary and buddy of Charles Dickens; his novel has some VERY interesting parallels with Sarah Waters' modern novel (or, more chronologically correctly, hers contains some interesting parallels to his), and confirms that a certain nasty trick/switch was considered entirely feasible during that time period (trying not to spoil for those who haven't read/viewed yet).

P.S. If you don't find the site I've linked to to be comfortable for reading (I realize that each person's eyes have different comfort levels), the entry for this title in the booklist on my collections page has two alternate links to different reading sites. If paper is preferred, most libraries will have a copy of this book.
