Antoinette narrates Part Three from England, where she is locked away in a garret room in her husband's house, under the watch of a servant, Grace Poole.

    Antoinette spends her days in isolation. It sounds modest enough but half a century on, the book is enshrined in campuses around the world and beloved by readers of all stripes. The man soon receives a menacing letter from Daniel Cosway, one of old Cosway's illegitimate children. When the couple arrives at Granbois, Antoinette's inherited estate, the man feels increasingly uncomfortable around the servants and his strange young wife. By concocting a "love potion" to be administered to Edward, she effectively sets up one of the novel's most devastating scenes, in which he reprises the atrocities of colonialism by casually seducing the servant girl who nurses him back to health, as his drugged wife sleeps in the next room.

The story traces her relationship with Grace Poole, the servant who is tasked with guarding her, as well as her disintegrating life with the Englishman, as he hides her from the world. For someone who, like me, spends their working life reading in straight lines — what's new, is it any good? Mason who, after a short courtship, asks for Annette's hand in marriage. The larvae of these species hatch within the sea and as they grow they travel to Europe or the East Coast of North America. Antoinette then bites her husband's arm, drawing blood.
