A story about this — 5 years ago
Unlike the other people who’ve written entries about this book I’m halfway through it and really really loving it. I find the main character, Tess, very likable, and her story is an interesting but sad one. I don’t feel the book to be depressing, although I admit it is quite sad. The descriptions are lovely, and I think that like all things it is just a matter of personal taste as to whether you will enjoy this book. Try it and see if you like it. Btw, if you like:
Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman, but also
Emma by Jane Austen
you will probably like this book!
