Agnes Grey, by Anne Bronte. I had rather low expectations for this lesser-known Bronte novel, but it definitely exceeded them. It started out like Jane Eyre (Agnes is a governess) but without the gothic drama, and ended up much more like a Jane Austen novel. Agnes reminds me of an Elinor Dashwood or Anne Elliot.

I think Ann Bronte is tremendously overlooked and under-rated. (As I understand it, Anne Bronte's sister, Charlotte tried to suppress Anne's writing out of jealousy.) A slightly slow start but then it was a page-turner. I really enjoyed it.
