I love George Eliot, and this was her first published book--a collection of three shorter stories. It was good to see how she progressed as she wrote her later novels that I adore. This was written in a style that needed editing. I couldn't follow the third story at all until I read the first chapter after chapter two and three, where it makes more sense to be placed. Given this I made it through the stories, found delight in them and much needed information for my own historical novel that is set in this Victorian time period and deals with dissenting religions, all those not THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. So for my research I would give it five stars for readability, three stars.
