Charles Dickens has written two kind of novels - very detailed and wordy ones and ones that move quickly. This novel is one of his more fast paced novels. It involves the history of an orphan named Esther with a mysterious past who, along with two other young adults, is entangled in a legal battle with the superfluous Chancery courts of England.
