Bleak House by Charles Dickens
"Bleak House" centers on a young girl, Esther Summerson, and the people she encounters during her life at Bleak House. Her guardian, John Jarndyce is involved in a long drawn out court case. And his ward, Richard, hopes to get his share of the fortune when the case is resolved.
"Bleak House" has a huge cast of characters. It's hard to keep up at times, but by the end they've all intertwined.
It was a great book.
