A most modern book,

This review is from: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
This book should be a must-read for all women about to marry. The story's moving force is the heroine's decision to marry her husband despite knowing he has a dark side. She believes that she will be able to reform him, but the book shows how mistaken she is and how she finds herself trapped and constanty struggling to protect her son. I don't agree that her new love is a bore, his is just not as (undoubtely) interesting as a character as her husband, but he is I believe a good person. Anne Bronte proves with this and her other book what a great loss her premature death was.
