I can only apply my twenty-first century judgment on this book, so naturally this will be biased toward what I'm more accustomed to, which is fast-paced plots and happy endings. Essentially, this book is a soap opera; to call it anything else would be a lie and probably a disservice. It's great for this reason, since the reader is never deprived of drama and suspense. However, the plot tended toward predictable and meandering at times. I actually really liked the ending, though, because it should have been obvious, yet after reading Rosamond's story I found myself hoping for a different ending entirely. Overall it's a good read IF you're into nineteenth century fiction and soap opera plot lines.
