Poor boy Pip grows up infatuated with the privileged Estella who lives with her eccentric recluse aunt, Ms. Havisham. Only money can improve Pip’s lot in life and love. Dickens' richly-drawn characters and beautifully descriptive storytelling will pull readers into this tale of mystery, unrequited love, money, class, and morals.
