Today's puzzle has been guessed correctly.

  This distressed lady appears in an 1857 novel.

Here is the clue which was offered:

CLUE for #8

The distressed lady also has a blind husband. She is a character created by an author known for his insightful portrayals of women.

Congratulations to Kay Douglas for recgonizing the heroine:
It's _The Dead Secret_ by Wilkie Collins, and surely that's Rose Treverton finding out just what that secret is.
Kay liked the clue about Collins' strong female charaters.
