What a storyteller! Enjoyable.
For a women in her time, she had a rare insight to human nature.
A student's view.
I read this book as part of my GCSE English Literature course. Compared to Eliot's other works, this novel seems to be more "fable" like; guiding the reader through family values and life lessons such as money can't buy happiness. Overall, a good novel which takes a little time to get into.
