Doesn't hold a candle to Jane Eyre, to which this book has been compared. The writing and symbolism and characterizations I have no complaint about, but as with Gone With the Wind, I can't entirely be satisfied with a book if I don't like the protagonist. As a portrait of a rather downtrodden and helpless woman, especially of one trapped by societal conventions and gender roles, this certainly is effective. Just not my style.
