Dombey and Son

by Charles Dickens

Proud Mr. Dombey puts all his hopes in his son, but the child (whose mother died in childbirth) dies, his daughter is ignored, his new wife leaves and at last, his business fails. Is Mr. Dombey ruined or is there still a chance for him?

I love Dickens, and I found this book, which I had never read, in a second-hand store. It's very long, but quite an interesting tale.
