"Felix Holt, the Radical"

I had another excellent hour or so with this fine novel. Her characters, with their different dialects, are utterly realistic and charming, and of course the wisdom in the book is ever-present, almost page after page. Here is an especially wonderful quote: "So our lives glide on: the river ends we don't know where, and the sea begins, and then there is no more jumping ashore."
