There are some well-known elements woven into this book: unsanctioned love, illegitimate children, mistaken identity, rich versus poor, false piety... they're very familiar in literature because they're very familiar in life. This book has them in what feels like some very obvious ways, but on some level, it works. Ellen Adair is a compelling character, and the way the series of events in her life play out, almost by chance (as most lives do) is expertly written. This is one of my favorite novels. ( )
