Publisher Description

Making masterful use of a counter pointed plot, Eliot presents the stories of a number of denizens of a small English town on the eve of the Reform Bill of 1832. The main characters, Dorothea Brooke and Tertius Lydgate, each long for exceptional lives but are powerfully constrained by their own unrealistic expectations as well as conservative society. The novel is notable for its deep psychological insight and sophisticated character portraits.

The takeaway

This book has taught me a lesson of empathy and compassion. It has not been done by using instructions, so I am just summarising the most precious thing I got out of it. Nothing too significant happens in the book, but thereby it does not pretend to be amusing in a habitual sense. Nevertheless, it was not overload with descriptions and employed more action-based approach using verbs. The book kept me all the way through; and there were many times, during a relatively long time I have been reading it, when I came to it as my splendid refuge.
