This really is a masterpiece of literary work and is worth wading through some of the rather obscure language and dialect to read.

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.

A compelling story of a brother and sister. Brilliant descriptive writing that brings the characters to life. Well worth the perseverance required.

Very good read, quite funny in parts. I think it has a different feel than her other novels.

To begin with I found it a bit tedious. Over half the novel involved only tom, Maggie the aunts but as the grew to adulthood the story really gripped me and made my final opinion that of an excellent book.

I cried bitter tears on finishing this classic! Beautifully written with acutely observed characters. Overall it was a powerful and emotional trip through the life and loves of a passionate, complex and intelligent woman.
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!!
