    Book details

A Day of Pleasure - Ellen Wood Ellen Wood (17 January 1814 –: 10 February 1887), was an English novelist, better known as Mrs. Henry Wood. She is perhaps remembered most for her 1861 novel East Lynne, but many of her books became international best-sellers, being widely received in the United States and surpassing Charles Dickens' fame in Australia. Wood's works were translated into many languages, including Russian. Leo Tolstoy, in a 9 March 1872 letter to his older brother Sergei, noted that he was 'reading Mrs. Wood's wonderful novel In the Maze'. Wood wrote several works of supernatural fiction, including 'The Ghost' (1862) and the often anthologized 'Reality or Delusion?' (1868). At her death (caused by bronchitis) her estate was valued at over £:36,000, then a very considerable sum. She was buried in Highgate Cemetery, London. A monument to her was unveiled in Worcester Cathedral in 1916.
