No Name (1862) by Wilkie Collins is a 19th-century book revolving around the issue of illegitimacy. It was originally serialized in Charles Dickens' magazine All the Year Round before book publication. The tale begins in 1846, at Combe-Raven in West Somerset, the country residence of the happy Vanstone family. In the first scene, the reader is introduced to Mr. Andrew Vanstone, Mrs. Vanstone, and their two daughters Norah, age 26, happy and quiet, and the irrepressible Magdalen, just 18, beautiful but with a steely jaw. They live in peace and contentment, looked after by their governess, Miss Garth. Magdalen likes nothing better than to read at her window while her personal maid combs through and through her long hair. This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents. This book has also been annotated, with extensive additional information about the book and its author, including an overview, plot, adaptations, extensive character information including major and minor, biographical and bibliographical information.
