The eNotes summary for this book does not come with a chapter by chapter summary.  It is more of an overall summary that also has some amount of analysis or evaluation of the book's merits.  The essay is about 1800 words.

Roughly half of those 1800 words are devoted to a brief summary of the book's plot.  The rest of the essay, as I said, is more of analysis.  It talks about how well the author brings out historical details (both big stuff and little stuff like what daily life was like).  It also talks a little bit about whether the novel is entertaining or not.
