Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much-loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

With enchanting detail and precise plotting, George Eliot's most autobiographical novel tells the story of a brother and sister pulled apart. This edition of The Mill on the Floss features a new introduction by Professor Kathryn Hughes.

Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom enjoy a close friendship and a rural childhood on the banks of the river Floss. But the approach of adulthood brings tension to their relationship; intelligent and fiery Maggie tests the boundaries of nineteenth-century society in her search for love while Tom embraces convention and accepts his father's desire for him to become a businessman. Increasingly self-righteous, Tom disapproves of his sister's suitors and when he discovers that she took a fateful boat trip with Stephen Guest, her cousin's fiance, he turns his back on her. Maggie is ostracized by her beloved brother and her own community, and only through tragic events are the siblings reunited . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Maggie's] one of those great literary heroines whom bookish girls grow up wanting to be. Just like Anne of Green Gables or even Jane Eyre, Maggie captures exactly the dilemma of being the clever girl of the family * Guardian *
As one comes back to [Eliot's] books after years of absence they pour out, even against our expectations, the same store of energy and heat, so that we want more than anything to idle in the warmth -- Virginia Woolf
