Book Description:

Joy Ogilvie, the beautiful young daughter of a Kentucky colonel, plays a joke with her friends, pretending to be 'Lady Athlyne', after hearing a story about the dashing Irish nobleman Lord Athlyne. Little does she know that half a world away, the real Lord Athlyne is a prisoner of war in a South African camp, where word reaches him that a woman in America is impersonating his wife.

Upon his release, he decides to investigate the situation and travels to New York, where a near fatal accident introduces him to Joy and her father. Athlyne and Joy fall instantly in love but a series of misadventures and dangerous obstacles threatens to prevent their marriage. And when Colonel Ogilvie learns of their affair and challenges Athlyne to a duel to the death, their love just may end in tragedy!

One of the most remarkable treatments of the theme of mutual and passionate love in English literature, Lady Athlyne reveals Stoker to be a versatile and multi dimensional author. Poorly received upon its initial release in 1908, it has remained out of print and unobtainable for a century. This Valancourt Books edition follows the text of the exceedingly rare 1908 New York edition held by the Library of Congress.
