Helen 'Graham'—exiled with her child to the desolate moorland mansion, adopting an assumed name and earning her living as a painter—has returned to Wildfell Hall in flight from a disastrous marriage. Narrated by her neighbor Gilbert Markham, and in the pages of her own diary, the novel portrays Helen's struggle for independence at a time when law and society defined a married woman as her husband's property.
