A Man Falls In Love With A Woman’s Portrait… In:
—Tales From The Vault – Episode 2—
Here is my second reading of an Edith Nesbit Tale, famously also read in audiobook form by Anton Lester (from British TV’s Hustle, The Ghost Squad & Endeavour series).
Summary / Synopsis:
Mr. Devigne inherits a house in Chelsea and an annuity from his wealthy Aunt Dorcas. There he discovers two portraits, one bearing a striking resemblance to himself, and the other of a woman clad in a black velvet gown with “large, deep, luminous eyes”. Infatuated with the image of the beguiling beauty, he wishes that she “…were a woman and not a picture”. A story of dark romance and tragedy unfolds.
Never miss an episode:
