review Ì The Criminal Conversation of Mrs Norton 104 Westminster London June 22 1836 Crowds are gathering at the Court of Common Pleas On trial is Caroline Sheridan Norton a beautiful and clever young woman who had been maneuvered into marrying the Honorable George Norton when she was just nineteen Ten years older he is a dull violent and controlling lawyer but Caroline is determined not to be a traditional wife By her early twenties Caroline has become a respected poet and songwriter clever mimic and outrageous flirt Her beauty and wit attract many male admirers including the Prime Minister Lord Melbourne After years of simmering jealousy George Norton accuses 3 It s sobering to think that even as late as the 1830s any children born in a marriage were entirely the father s If the marriage broke up whatever the circumstances a mother could not make a claim for custody as a wife had no separate legal existenceThis book is the story of Caroline Norton the breakdown of her marriage and her subseuent fight to get the law changed when her husband refused to let her see her three young sonsCaroline was a young clever flirtatious and beautiful woman when she married The marriage was initially reasonably happy but her husband soon proved himself to be a drunken boorish individual who thought nothing of giving Caroline a good beating to try and bring her into line He hit her so hard when she was 8 months pregnant with her 4th child that she miscarried When she eventually left him for the final time being no longer able to cope with his violence he refused to let her see her boys and constantly used them as a bargaining tool when it came to the financial details of their separationDespite Norton s vile behaviour and wife beating tendencies the law was always on his sideWell written and very interesting
