Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140431217, Paperback)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, whose only delights are 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.

CLASSIC FICTION. Mary Ann Evans wrote under the pen name George Eliot. She did this so that her works would be taken seriously in a Victorian England still under the assumption that females were of lesser intelligence. Her novels were set in a provincial England and were know for their realism. Adam Bebe was her first novel written in 1859. The story centers around 4 characters in a rural town in 1799. The plot centers around a love triangle, an unwanted pregnancy, a child left abandoned to die and a trial.
