  • "If life had no love in it, what else was there for Maggie? Tragic and moving, "The Mill on the Floss" is a novel of grand passions and tormented lives. As the rebellious Maggie's fiery spirit and imaginative nature bring her into bitter conflict with her narrow provincial family, most painfully with her beloved brother Tom, their fates are played out on an epic scale. George Eliot drew on her own frustrated rural upbringing to create one of the great novels of childhood, and one of literature's most unforgettable heroines."

Rebellious by nature, she causes friction both among the townspeople of St. Ogg's and in her own family, particularly with her brother, Tom. Maggie's passionate nature makes her a beloved heroine, but it is also her undoing. The Mill on the Floss is a luminous exploration of human relationships and of a heroine who critics say closely resembles Eliot herself. - Publisher."

  • "Maggie Tulliver and her older brother Tom live a happy, sheltered childhood at Durlcote Mill on the River Floss. Though Maggie and Tom are drastically different'he is pragmatic and rational, while she longs for intellectual gains and worldly experiences'they share a strong bond that is strengthened as they are forced to deal with a great family debt, the loss of the mill, and the eventual death of their father. When Tom leaves to earn back the family's former estate, Maggie finally gains the freedom to experience life beyond the mill. But the relationships she cultivates in her new-found independence'those with men, in particular'complicate her connection with her brother and the two find it impossible to go back to their simple life at the mill on the Floss.
