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.
