    4. Though a 700 page novel, I was determined to finish this classic which was chosen by my book group In the end, I m very glad I did I like to learn about cultures in other eras and countries, and after reading the first 150 pages, I became engrossed in Lucie Snowe s observations of life as a single woman in France during the mid 1800s She was a very unusual and lucky woman to secure a governess position and then become a teacher since, at the beginning of the story she is alone and penniless with [...]
