    this book is one of the most serious spiritual works i have ever read, C.S.Lewis' works included. although it is a novel, and with a great deal of mystery and suspence, too, it also deals drastically with serious matters, such as adultery, divorce, faithfulness to God when He seems to have forgotten, child-rearing and romance as it should be. no matter how old it is, this book's truths are very contemporary and very much needed in a modern world.

    I love this book. It is an excellent work from the least known of the Bronte sisters. The reason that I give it only 4 stars is for a few controversial aspects.For one thing, there is alcoholism displayed in it. It is by no means condoned, but there is scene where a man is aggressive with his wife and throws her to the floor. However, I found that people put too much stress on this factor.The other thing I would mention is that the heroine believes in a sort of purgatory. She uses Scripture to back up her belief, and it may confuse those not firm in their beliefs.Again, this is an excellent book. Anne Bronte's writing is filled with beautiful imagery and sprinkled with a taste of her own poetry. The "sparring" relationship exhibited by the two main characters makes for a very emotional yet pleasing read. Please read it alongside the better-known books of Anne's sisters.
