Imes a week ever since the stage coach had begun to pass through Deerbrook Deerbrook was a rather pretty village dignified as it was with the woods of a fine park which formed the back ground to its best points of view Of this pretty village Mr Grey's was the prettiest house standing in a field round which the road swept There were trees enough about it to shade without darkening it and the garden and shrubbery behind were evidently of no contemptible extent The timber and coal yards and granaries which stretched down to the river side were hidden by a nice management of the garden walls and training of the shrubbery In the drawing room of this tempting white house sat Mrs Grey and her eldest daughter one spring evening. This was meant to be a buddy read with Buried in Print but I fell at the first hurdle and started skimming after 35 pages I haven t made it throu

Hite house planted in a pretty situation in a shrubbery or commanding a sunny common or nestling between two hills and to say to himself as the carriage sweeps past its gate I should like to live there I could be very happy in that pretty place Transient visions pass before his mind's eye of dewy summer mornings when the shadows are long on the grass and of bright autumn afternoons when it would be luxury to saunter in the neighbouring lanes; and of frosty winter days when the sun shines in over the laurustinus at the window while the fire burns with a different light from that which it gives in the dull parlours of a city Mr Grey's house had probably been the object of this kind of speculation to one or persons three t.

    Chances are good that in many a Goodreads shelf ordered by original published date there is a gap in female authored literature from the end of Austen to the beginning of the Brontës What few I have myself in that region were all

    uite a lot like Austen and Eliot with a swirl of Trollope for good measure For the first half of this very long book I thought it might be a perfect hidden treasure from the 19th century I read it on tenterhooks hoping against hope that the novel could sustain that level of excellence The characters the premise and the occasional emergence of a sly Austen ish narrative voice had me dreaming bigUnfortunately th

    Deerbrook has been on a shelf in my office at home for decades I finally picked it up this winter It's 500 pages long and a bit of a snoozer at times but I found it fascinating Martineau was a reformer not so much a novelist and she has created 1838 I think? two highly intelligent young women and tracked their fates There is tons wrong with this book starting with the page long chunks of high minded stilted dia

    If you're disappointed by my rating think about how much I'm disappointed myself to give only two stars to this classic Deerbrook has been described as the gap between Jane Austen and George Eliot as one of the first Victorian novels of English domestic life as an important novel that must be read by everyone who love 19th century classics e

    This was meant to be a buddy read with Buried in Print but I fell at the first hurdle and started skimming after 35 pages I haven’t made it through a Victorian triple decker in well over a decade; just since 2012 I’ve failed to get through three novels by Charles Dickens whom I used to call my favorite author I’m mildly disappointed

    Both the author and the book were below my radar when a friend recommended it to me as a book to read It was hard to get hold of a paper copy in a sensible edition; Surrey County Libraries don't have a copy the Penguin classics edition is listed on the Penguin website as being an eBook only but via abebooks I managed to get a new but out of print? Penguin classics edition Phew I really enjoyed the writing; the combination of narrative and
