The Whores' Asylum

(2012)
(The Unpierced Heart)
A novel by

 
A haunting, romantic, gothic novel set in 19th century Oxford.

Edward Fraser and Stephen Chapman are roommates at Oxford in the 1880s, Fraser in divinity school and Chapman in medicine. Despite being different in almost every way, the two form a deep friendship that is tested when Chapman takes up work at a clinic treating venereal disease and offering asylum to the city's prostitutes. To Fraser, it seems a disreputable choice of career, made even more so by Chapman's relationship with the woman that runs the clinic, Diana Pelham, a familiar face that Fraser had hoped he would never see again. As the friendship between the two men is brought to breaking point, and long-held secrets are brought to light, a violent set of events is set in motion that ensures that neither will ever be the same again...
