Nothing really happens until the last quarter of the book and then it is tragic. The story is quite dependent on dialogue and it seemed to go on and on. By the last quarter of the book things begin to move with the soul of the book finally revealed. I suspect this is an accurate depiction womens lives in 1901 Great Britain. It was a time of the haves and the have nots, the privileged and the people who worked themselves into an early grave. And yet even the homes of the wealthy were rife with unhappiness and discontent. The future appears bleak for them all despite the strong current of change that is sweeping them all along whether they go willingly or not.
