Summary
Young orphan Pip wants no more from life than to one day join his brother-in-law Joe at the blacksmith's forge. Until, that is, fate intervenes -- twice. First, an escaped convict ambushes Pip in the marshes; and not long after, Miss Havisham, a wealthy, reclusive neighbor at the macabre Satis House, seeks Pip out as a playmate for her adopted daughter Estella. Pip falls almost instantly in love with Estella, and realizes that he needs to be more than a simple blacksmith's apprentice if he ever hopes to win her. But Miss Havisham -- a bride-to-be who was jilted at the altar years ago and still wears her wedding dresss amidst the fossilized ruins of her wedding feast -- has gone to great lengths to ensure that Estells will never so much as risk heartbreak, raising her more as a tool for vengeance than a child. But when Pip is mysteriouly plucked from obscurity and lured to London by an anonymous benefactor hoping to make a gentleman out of him, he suddenly has unlimited wealth at his disposal -- and true love in his future. Or so he thinks
