The book has stayed with me. for 2 wks now. but my reaction is what a waste of a life, not one but four. Reminds me how dishonesty and creep into succeeding generations. Writing style is a little stuffy Victorian, but appropriate for the setting. loves and marries a women who tells him she does not love him. I am struck of a how difficult it would be to live in a loveless marriage. How sad it would be not to be able to take one into your confidence. I guess it has struck me how one single bad choice, one bad obsessive choice, can change a whole life.
