Another moral classic from George Eliot.
I knew the plot so no surprises there. Her characters are perfectly shaped and never have to act inappropriately in order to service the plot. There is no moral fudginess and each character receives what they deserve. although she is not compassionate in her judgement she describes her characters in such a way that we have sympathy and understanding for their conflicts.
Quite a heavy read, with lots of religion and not my top favourite of her works but a good read.
