The Honeymoon: A Novel About George Eliot by Dinitia Smith

Based on the life of George Eliot, famed author of Middlemarch, this captivating account of Eliot??s passions and tribulations explores the nature of love in its many guises

Dinitia Smith??s spellbinding novel recounts George Eliot??s honeymoon in Venice in June 1880 following her marriage to a handsome young man twenty years her junior. When she agreed to marry John Walter Cross, Eliot was recovering from the death of George Henry Lewes, her beloved companion of twenty-six years. Eliot was bereft: left at the age of sixty to contemplate profound questions about her physical decline, her fading appeal, and the prospect of loneliness.
In her youth, Mary Ann Evans??"who would later be known as George Eliot??"was a country girl, considered too plain to marry, so she educated herself in order to secure a livelihood. In an era when female novelists were objects of wonder, she became the most famous writer of her day??"with a male nom de plume. The Honeymoon explores different kinds of love, and of the possibilities of redemption and happiness even in an imperfect union. Smith integrates historical truth with her own rich rendition of Eliot??s inner voice, crafting a page-turner that is as intelligent as it is gripping.
