Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Booker Prize 1990

Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, at once a literary detective novel and a triumphant love story. It is the tale of a pair of young scholars investigating the lives of two Victorian poets. 

Following a trail of letters, journals and poems they uncover a web of passion, deceit and tragedy, and their quest becomes a battle against time.

Fantastic!

Great book and very well read. Couldn’t turn it off until all was revealed at the end. One of the best books I’ve listened to in the last year.
