When he remarries, a new step-sister enters Mollys quiet life – loveable, but worldly and troubling, Cynthia. The narrative traces the development of the two girls into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford.

No nineteenth-century novel contains a more devastating rejection than this of the Victorian male assumption of moral authority, writes Pam Morris in her introduction to this new edition, in which she explores the novels main themes – the role of women, Darwinism and the concept of Englishness – and its literary and social context.
