Deeping, Warwick: The Woman at the Door. v1. 29 Aug 2021

Which is the greater of two evils — a man who abuses his wife over the course of many years, or a woman who kills such a man in self defense? In 1930’s England, such a woman would either hang or spend the rest of her life in prison.

But what if someone… (theoretically speaking) spirits such a woman away, hides her, creates a new identity for her, a new life somewhere far away… on the continent perhaps. Is that man an even greater sinner? Should he be held with even greater responsibility or is it perhaps true that “the law is an ass,” after all?

(— Goodreads review)

==========
George Warwick Deeping (28 May 1877 – 20 April 1950) was an English novelist and short story writer, whose best-known novel was Sorrell and Son (1925). He was one of the best-selling authors of the 1920s and 1930s, with seven of his novels making the best-seller list.
His early work is dominated by historical romances, but his later novels more usually dealt with modern life, discussing controversial issues, and were critical of many tendencies of twentieth-century civilisation.
