Book Review: "Little Dorrit"

Some of Charles Dicken's greatest works use inheritance to move the stories along. We have mentioned Charles Dicken's "Bleakhouse" in a previous blog. Another of Charles Dicken's great books is "Little Dorrit." Much of the story follows individuals who grapple with the consequences that come with having a lack of money or an over abundance of money. There is the burning of a will and unclaimed inheritance reclaimed by relatives. There are family secrets to protect and the ultimate triumph of love over money. It really is a great book. The BBC production starring Claire Foy, Matthew Macfayden, Tom Courtenay, et al. (2009) brings to life this wonderful book.
