Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

An upstanding young man falls in love with a beautiful daughter of a tradesman--but cannot marry her, not because of their inequality in class, but because she is sexually immoral. BASIL includes an irredeemable villain, letters and a manuscript from various characters, and detailed descriptions of the English countryside.

This has the feel of a story written in another language and run through an online translator. It just doesn't read smoothly. The story is good, but it requires too much concentration to get through the wrong words.
