Molly Gibson, the only daughter of a widowed doctor, lives in a provincial English town of the 1830s. Her strikingly realistic coming-of-age story, recounted with humor and pathos, depicts the consequences of both good and bad marriages. Timeless themes of friendship, love, money, and tragedy are richly developed amid the novel's portrait of a rapidly changing society.
