George Eliot’s first full-length novel, Adam Bede, is a profound rendering of 19th century English pastoral life. This timeless story of seduction and betrayal follows the earnest carpenter Adam Bede, who has set his heart on the all-too-beautiful Hetty Sorrell. But Hetty is attracted to the fickle squire Arthur Donnithorne, whose dalliance with the young woman precipitates a series of unforeseen events... Eliot’s gift for leisurely and lyrical prose is in full effect here and her insight into human emotion and complexity is unrivalled. Georgina Sutton trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. She has worked extensively in repertory theatres around the UK and her audio work includes voice commercials for Classic FM. Among her recordings for Naxos AudioBooks are Thackeray’s Vanity Fair, Brontë’s Shirley and Lawrence’s The Virgin and the Gypsy.
