I would have liked SOME drama or melodrama instead of the droning on about souls and salvation.

Somehow I had the vague notion that there would be gothic elements, that the house itself would figure more prominently, be a bit ghostly and more atmospheric. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall would be a great title for a book about a house with a ghostly tenant, after all.

So that was a disappointment. But as much as I disliked the characters and the wordiness and elements of the plot, for some reason I can't articulate, I sort of enjoyed the book anyway, and I'm looking at Agnes Grey (which is happily much shorter).
