Publisher's Summary

Catherine Havisham was born into privilege. Handsome and imperious, she is the daughter of a wealthy brewer and lives in luxury in Satis House. But she is never far from the smell of hops and the arresting letters on the brewhouse wall - Havisham. A reminder of all she owes to the family name and the family business.
Sent by her father to stay with the Chadwycks, Catherine discovers literature, music, and masquerades - elegant pastimes to remove the taint of new money. But for all her growing sophistication, Catherine is anything but worldly, and when a charismatic stranger pays her attention, everything - her heart, her future, the very Havisham name - is vulnerable.
A masterly tribute to one of Dickens's most celebrated and iconic characters, this compelling prelude to Great Expectations tells the story of Miss Havisham's early life, before heartbreak came to define her entirely.
