Maggie and Tom Tulliver are the son and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tulliver who own Dorlcote Mill. It should have been a happiness to them all as they lived in relative comfort but sadly, Mr. Tulliver had a disastrous habit of going to litigation and thus rendered himself bankrupt. On hearing that his arch rival to whom he had lost the last court case (Wakem) had bought the Mill, he pulled him off his horse and nearly whipped him to death, saved only by Maggie pulling her Father off him. After this Mr. Tulliver was taken very ill and nearly died. Then to add to their indignity further the Bailliffs were sent in to recover debts that Mr. Tulliver had accrued over the years by going to law. Poor Mrs. Tulliver having to watch the Bailliffs come in and seize her furniture and other sundry belongings to pay their creditors was mortified as were her rather stuck up sistes. Wakem relented enough to take Mr. Tulliver back on as his Manager when he was well again but it rankled with the older man who got Tom to swear on the bible that he would see Wakem 'brought down'.
Maggie had long ago, when Tom and she were at school with Wakem's son, Phillip (a hunchbacked lad), formed an attachment with him which as they both grew towards adulthood became something more. She and he were content with this but her Brother made her swear on the Bible that she would never marry him or be friends with him so long as their Father was still living and loving her Brother, she so swore. However, Maggie and Phillip meet in secret and this is soon found out so Maggie is sent away.Read more ›
Repressed feelings, social ostracism, family feuds, kinship, pomp, pride, spirit, materialism, forgiveness, sibling love, sexual love, morality, independence, dependence and, ultimately, gutwrenching tragedy. Loved it.
That about sums it up really!!

This mid-Victorian novel reads as well today as ever it did in 1860. Read more
This book took ages to read because I had to look up so many unfamiliar words, but it was well worth it. An excellent story, a real insight into how people lived in those times.Published 17 months ago by traceyalesbury
