The History of David Grieve (Mary Augusta Ward) pdf, epub, doc

It has taken me a long time to get through this long novel by Mary Ward, but I'm glad to have read it, though I don't think it is as good as her better-known novels such as 'Robert Elsmere' and 'Helbeck of Bannisdale'. Ranging from the wilds of the Peak District to bohemian Manchester and even more bohemian Paris, the book feels very patchy, brilliant at times, almost unreadable at others. Some parts are wildly romantic and reminiscent of the Brontes or George Sand, while other long sections are full of laborious realistic detail about everything from second-hand bookshops to vegetarian restaurants. There are also pages on end of theological and philosophical discussion. Some of the material is daring for the period, as the hero, David, lives "in sin" with a young French artist who believes in free love, in a passionate central section which is probably the finest part of the novel. I was also surprised to find that the plot keeps taking abrupt twists which aren't what you would expect to happen next at all, and going off at tangents, as in real life. All in all, I'd say this isn't the best of Ward's novels, but, if you are interested in her work, you will find it fascinating. I'd really like to give five stars to some chapters, two to others!
