Adam Bede is a hardy young carpenter who cares for his aging mother. His one weakness is the woman he loves blindly: the trifling town beauty, Hetty Sorrel, delights only in her baubles - and the delusion that the careless Captain Donnithorne may ask for her hand.
Betrayed by their innocence, both Adam and Hetty allow their foolish hearts to trap them in a triangle of seduction, murder, and retribution. Only in the lovely Dinah Morris, a preacher, does Adam find his redemption.

After listening to MIddlemarch, I eagerly sought-out another of George Eliot's books. I am satisfied that I selected Adam Bede. As her first book, it is not as polished as Middlemarch; however, it is quite enjoyable. The reader, Nadia May, is superb. She employs every voice mechnization possible to portray the many characters authentically and she succeeds.A good listen.

So this is a chick book back in the day when chicks were not allow to write and so had to use male pen names. For the time and place in history this was written it is a very good story with excellent character development and plot line.
