  1. This is a really interesting story of the consequences of deceit and lies It follows the story of a husband father benefactor who falls into sin the misappropriation of money and the decisions sometimes strange ones that he and others who know him then make The book, written in 1881, will keep your interest, and the book exalts repentance and forgiveness There are some things left without adequate explanation, such as how many of the characters could be so devoted to the wife and mother, Felicit [...]


  2. Victorian tale of social stain and forgiveness, with interesting sidelights of a talented woman author on the writing trade of the time in one chapter.


  3. Very good book It dramatically shows consequences for our actions and why it s so important to choose a good spouse It is a very sad book and not a light read in any way, but readers will be left mulling over the ideas in the book for a long time after completing it.
