My mom read this book in Speed Reading Class in the 1960's. It made such an impression on her that forty years later she still remembered it and wanted to read it again. I found it for her here. It's definitely a classic, a romance, a drama and a tragedy, and it's worth the read. I'm surprised it wasn't part of the required reading for any of my high school or college classes. It definitely is more interesting than many of those books were. Great read in a single sitting, not that you'd be able to put it down anyway.
