galled by his own poverty. He became foreman of the engineers in the dockyard at Sheerness. Mrs. Morel--Gertrude--was the second daughter. She favoured her mother, loved her mother best of all; but she had the Coppards' clear, defiant blue eyes and their broad brow. She remembered to have hated her father's overbearing manner towards her gentle, humorous, kindly-souled mother. She remembered running over the breakwater at Sheerness and finding the boat. She remembered to have been petted and flattered by all the men when she had gone to the dockyard, for she was a delicate, rather proud child. She remembered the funny old mistress, whose assistant she had become, whom she had loved to help in the private school. And she still had the Bible that John Field had given her.

Overall I thought the book dragged, especially in the last half it became rather repetitious like he wasn't sure where he was going with it. It should have been shorter and the ending was a let down. If he had avoided so much prose with no real direction and focused on the characters I may have enjoyed it more. Maybe it just wasn't my style. It is an alright read once but not one I would pick up again.
