Meeting by chance at a gambling hall in Europe, the separate lives of Daniel Deronda and Gwendolen Harleth are immediately intertwined. Daniel, an Englishman of uncertain parentage, becomes Gwendolyn's redeemer as she finds herself drawn to his spiritual and altruistic nature after a loveless marriage. But Daniel's path was already set when he rescued a young Jewess from suicide.
Daniel Deronda, George Eliot's final novel, is a remarkable work, encompassing themes of religion, imperialism and gender within its broad and fascinating scope.

The perfect long audiobook
- D. Cottam
Juliet Stevenson is fabulous as usual
philisophical, interesting, engaging
Not quite as good a story as Middlemarch but more philosophical.
Juliet Stevenson is just an unbeatable narrator. She will spoil you and you won't want to listen to anyone else.
Gwendolen's unlikable character was strangely enjoyable and amusing, her speech was fantastically portrayed by JS.
