Reviews

Dit boek, geschreven in 1847, is een van de beste romans uit de Engelse literatuur, een meesterwerk van een geïsoleerd levende schrijfster. Door de kracht en de diep-menselijke behandeling van thema's als liefde en haat, wraak en eenzaamheid, is het nog steeds modern. Opnieuw uitgegeven klassiek Engels verhaal in pocket-editie met een modern omslag; goede letter en marges.
