Editorial Reviews

Sara Kestelman offers an introspective performance of George Eliot’s 1860 novel about country life, The Mill on the Floss.

The novel centers around siblings Tom and Maggie Tulliver, who grow up at Dorlcote Mill on the River Floss. The connection between rational Tom and impetuous Maggie is challenged by a number of critical events, including their father’s death and Maggie’s attraction to Philip Wakem, the scion of a rival family.
Kestelman sounds like a character in a BBC television production, and the understated drama that she brings to her narration and dialogue fits well with this meditation on family bonds.

Publisher's Summary

Maggie Tulliver has two lovers: Philip Wakem, son of her father's enemy; and Stephen Guest, already promised to her cousin; but the love she wants most in the world is that of her brother Tom. Maggie's struggle against her passionate and sensual nature leads her to a deeper understanding and to eventual tragedy.
