I really liked the overall plot and found it interesting to read about the societal conflicts during the 1810s in Yorkshire. However, it was a bit long and sometimes hard to follow. Shirley, the character whose name is the title of the book, doesn't even show up till halfway through. I recommend it if you like Brontë's other works. She does write a good romance story, although the character of Caroline drove me a bit crazy because she was a bit pathetic.
