This was well worth the read for the lovely descriptive language alone. The place plays such a central role in the story and sounds absolutely delightful. The setting of the story just before WWII, and with a clash of ideals between the young adults of that time and the Victorian ideals of the grandparents' generation was rich and interesting. I'm a bit ambivalent about some of the moralizing in the story, but I'm definitely interested reading the subsequent books about the Eliot family.
