The Mill on the Floss
Print
Penguin Putnam
Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family. As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother, a close friend who is also the son of her family's worst enemy, and a charismatic but dangerous suitor. With its poignant portrayal of sibling relationships,The Mill on the Floss is considered George Eliot's most autobiographical novel; it is also one of her most powerful and moving.


Baker & Taylor
Evokes nineteenth-century rural England through the story of Maggie Tulliver, who attempts to adapt to her life until her brother forbids her to see the one person who understands her after she is found in a compromising situation.

Good book, if a bit slow at times. I love the main character, Maggie, for her strength of character.

Fantastic introductory book to George Elliot's world!

I love George Elliot's flowing, descriptive writing style. And its hard not to feel attached to her vivid, well-developed and memorable characters. The metaphors and the symbolism in this book will have you pondering life for hours after you put this book down. Truly one of my favorite books.. but then again I haven't read any of Elliot's other works.
