Hi Sandra - did you know that Middlemarch is about to be published for the first time since it was released ... with the author's name on it - rather than her alias (Mary Ann Evans v George Eliot) ... but I have heard of - and now have read more about her - an interesting complicated woman. Take care - Hilary
