Mill on the Floss
Based on George Eliot’s own rural upbringing and relationship with her estranged brother. Growing up at Dorlcote Mill, young Maggie yearns for approval and affection. While her father dotes on her, her mother despairs of her rebelliousness, but it is the love of her brother Tom that Maggie craves most, and the two forge a close bond. But as adults, their paths diverge.
