Eight fictional women who stood by their men

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged eight fictional women who stood by their men, including:
Sylvia (Parade’s End, Ford Madox Ford).

To call Sylvia a wronged woman is absolutely a stretch. If anything, it’s her husband, Christopher, who is wronged by the flighty, unfaithful woman he’s married. That said, she stays with him for a time after rumors of his emotional affair with a young suffragette named Valentine start to swirl.
Read about another woman on the list.

Parade’s End also appears on Raymond Sokolov's list of five of the best books for the Anglomaniac.
