This is a good book (although I may a be a bit biased as I tend to really like books set on the moors.) Every girl needs a Diggory Venn in their lives, and I really do love Eustacia Vye (I tend to be drawn to characters like her- aka Estella in Great Expectations or Elvira from Blithe Spirit.) Eustacia's one desire in life is to be loved to madness by a man who is worthy of her and will take her to exotic places, unfortunately the moors do not offer many choices. It is very much worth the time it takes to read it.
