What am I reading?

I did a lot of "reading" this last week. I listened to the rest of Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens. A very good book.
A proud father wants a son to join him in the family business. He has a daughter that he doesn't even look at or speak to. She is the mother's child.  The wife dies hours after giving birth to a son, and that is where the story starts.
The daughter who just wants to be loved, and the son who is born sickly and loved dearly by his sister. The proud arrogant father who remarries to a proud woman. How love, deceit, and pride affects everyone.

 
 
If you have never read any Dickens books I would recommend you give one a try. He has great characters and you can get really into the story.

I had forgotten this one! I think it's time to re-read it. Thanks for the reminder. I love Dickens.
