The plot is starting to resemble a Sir Walter Scott book that I read (I can't remember the name). I'm surprised that Eliot would come out with something so similar? Is it about the same case or were there many cases like this? Even in particulars, it is the same. Not that GE should be read for her plot anyway, but, at the moment, I'm disappointed at the similarities.

I can see the train wreck of the marriage betweeen Adam and Hetty in the proposal scene. Intimately knowing each character's motivations and reasonings doesn't lessen the build-up of tension.

Provincial England has never been described so well. I love the emphasis placed on the weather and the small town community feels less restricting than with other authors. I'm starting to get far enough into the plot to see possible conflicts between characters, but GE is completely unpredictable. I'll wait and see what she has in store for everyone.

I just read the first chapter of the second book. The most stunning defense of realistic (as opposed to idealistic or stylistic) characterization I've ever read. She's amazing. That she did it in her first novel, before people started criticizing her for it just reinforces the idea that she was on some other higher plane than the rest of us.
