Jane, the Courageous

Jane, the Courageous by Katheryn Kimbrough
published by Popular Library
Copyright 1975

The Saga of the Phenwick Women

is one of the spellbinding novels in the greatest
series of gothic romances ever conceived.
You won't want to miss the others,
all exclusively in Popular Library editions.

When young, breathtakingly lovely Jane Munsk
was adopted into the Phenwick family, she was told
she should be grateful for the gift bestowed on her.
Now the motherless girl would bear the proud
Phenwick name, and be heiress to the Phenwick
wealth, power and position.

But from the moment the great doors of Phenwick
closed behind her, Jane realized how perilous her
new place in life would be. For in this home of
many secrets and dark violence, she was a puppet
in the hands of the tyrannical mistress of the manor
-and enslaved by a helpless passion for the hand-
some, haunted man who was her brother in name
only, and who led her down a twisting path of
danger to the ultimate betrayal of her love...


  1. Clearly the greatest gift bestowed upon her was a new last name. "Munsk"? Really? Sounds like something from the scent gland of a weasel.

  2. She truly is courageous, as is evidenced by her confident sauntering from the house...
