Bennett, Arnold: Anna of the Five Towns, v1, IMP, 20 Dec 2007.
Here's a summary from Wikipedia:
'The plot centres on Anna, daughter of a wealthy but miserly and dictatorial father, living in the Potteries area of Staffordshire, England. Her activities are strictly controlled by the Methodist church. Having escaped her father by marrying the respectable and attractive Henry, she attempts in vain to help Willy, son of a drunken and bankrupt business associate of her father's. She eventually realises, too late, that she loves Willy.'
The father is a miser and the book seems to be an anglicised version of Balzac's 'Eugenie Grandet'. The plots are surprisingly similar.
I've added a TOC, a picture and reformatted somewhat.
