"I visited Silksoundbooks and downloaded The Mill on The Floss by Fiona
Shaw. Just a quick word to say that I thought it was excellent - great
quality, easy to use, and cheap. I would highly recommend their website"

The story of the rebellious Maggie Tulliver’s tumultuous life in nineteenth century Britain is given a definitive reading by the phenomenal Fiona Shaw.
The Mill on the Floss details the lives of Tom and Maggie Tulliver, a brother and sister growing up on the river Floss near the village of St. Oggs, evidently in the 1820s and spans a period of 10-15 years, from Tom and Maggie’s childhood up until their deaths in a flood on the Floss.
Maggie Tulliver holds the central role in the book, as both her relationship with her older brother Tom, and her romantic relationships with Philip Wakem, a hunchbacked, but sensitive and intellectual, friend, and with Stephen Guest, a vivacious young socialite in St. Oggs and fiancé of Maggie’s cousin Lucy Deane, constitute the most significant narrative threads.
