Adam Bede, Paperback Book


It may seem like an old tale: the beautiful village girl, her faithful admirer, a country squire's seduction.

But seen through the eyes of any of its players, the old tale becomes one of fresh heartbreak, innocent hopes, best intentions gone awry, and better selves lost and restored.

George Eliot's first novel shows all her humane intelligence and intimate knowledge of the richness and complexity of ordinary life.
