An English "fallen woman" clearly deserved no mercy from the author or anyone else. Even Anna Karenina had some happiness with Vronsky before everything went pear-shaped.

Are people ready to discuss this book, or are we not going to do so?

Same!

Much like with Dickens, I tried to take this in stride knowing that it was serialized. I feel like serialized (and often paid by the word) just does not stand up to doing a long sitting of multiple sections at a time.

It was interesting that once Isabel had bolted, Wood dropped her story line -- not portraying any happiness or enjoyment of living in sin. Readers encounter her once again after her punishments have begun - loss of love/affection, poor health, refusal of marriage, etc. I may be wrong, but I don't recall one happy scene between Isabel and Levison after the 'elopement.'

And, the cross imagery I mentioned in an earlier post has a crashing re-entrance once Isabel returns to East Lynne.

You are right: she was regretting her decision almost as soon as she set foot in the coach. I suppose that until her cousin came along and gave her an allowance, she had absolutely no means of support and so had to stay with Levison, no matter how she felt about him and how he treated her.

The pitiless nature of the storyline reflects the attitude of English society at the time, and of course for a long time after that.

Indeed - Isabel couldn't be shown enjoying her sinful choice at all - after the uneasy carriage ride out of town, we next experience Isabel in her full squalor and misery.
