Hell Hath No Fury

Hell Hath No Fury

Published by St Martin’s Press and Headline, 1990

When Lady Lyndon-Fury snubs Daily O’Lindon on the station platform one soft day in 1885 she has no idea of the whirlwind she is sowing. For Daisy, bent on a minor revenge, becomes embroiled in a tit-for-tat that ends in the destruction of one family and a bitter-sweet triumph for another.

  • This novel features another of Macdonald’s vigorous, sensible, and ambitious heroines of the middle class. ... Beautifully written, this is Macdonald's best effort yet — Cynthia Ogorek, US Booklist
  • Macdonald’s characters fail to become credible, their actions are inconsistent and often unappealing ... and the prose is perfunctory — Publishers Weekly
  • Set in late 19th-century Ireland, this delightful novel is full of the warmth, humour, and passion of the Irish. — TV Guide
  • A compelling story ... Daisy, a strong woman, beautiful and clever, unwittingly creates her own particular hell. How exactly this comes about is not revealed until the very last page. — South Hants Gazette
  • With generally agreeable, chatty characters, a slow-moving but – like some of Macdonald’s others – restfully gossipy novel — Kirkus
  • He is every bit as bad as Dickens – Martin Seymour-Smith
